We’ve come a long way since John Smith Sr and his wife Isabella opened their first bakery in Dufftown almost 50 years ago. We’ve now grown to a workforce of over 70, with four shops and a fleet of vans delivering freshly baked goodness across Scotland every day from our modern facility in Huntly.
In the latest chapter of our family’s story, ‘J&I Smiths’ becomes ‘Smiths - Scotland’s Family Baker’, infusing traditional Scottish family values of warmth and friendliness with a strong sense of pride. At the heart of the Smiths brand is the wheat sheaf which is central in our logo as well as our thistle and stone colours, ensuring all our products stand out as soon as they leave our bakery.
We’ve never lost sight of how important our people are to us - we’ve got members of staff who have been part of the family for over 40 years - and many of our customers have been buying their morning goods from us for decades. Our team’s expertise and passion for baking ensures every product that leaves our bakery meets the high standards of the family.
Our core values; people, commitment, respect, pride and integrity or as we prefer to call them, our key ingredients define us. They are fundamental to the success of the brand and we live by these values on a daily basis, ensuring every aspect of the Smiths brand is a warm welcome to the family.
At Smiths we are passionate about quality baking infused with traditional Scottish family values. We pride ourselves on delivering quality across our extensive range of products from freshly baked morning rolls, butteries and loaves to the finest shortbread and cakes. Freshly baking thousands of these goods every day for your local supermarket, grocery store and our bakeries in Huntly, Keith & Dufftown.
