ROBERTS Bakery has paid tribute to its dedicated staff who are working round the clock to bake bread for the nation.

The Rudheath-based business has mounted banners outside of its factory to praise its workforce amid the current coronavirus outbreak and urged them to ‘keep going’ to help feed the nation.

The family bakery, which started out in 1887 as a grocery store which sold freshly baked bread to customers in Northwich, employs more than 850 key workers who are doing their bit to keep supermarket shelves stocked with the staple food.

And this is the way that the company is thanking, not only its hardworking staff, but all of Britain’s key workers for their tremendous efforts during the pandemic.

Mike Roberts, a fourth-generation member of the Roberts family, said: “These are unprecedented times for the nation and our bakery, and our people have had to work harder than ever.

“Many have had to work extra-long shifts to bake and deliver bread into supermarket stores every day.

“Supporting our community is very important to us and we want to thank everyone – our bakers, cleaning teams, maintenance experts, drivers and office staff – for working tirelessly to get our bread out there.

“We’re proud to be helping to keep Britain fed and we’ll all keep going together to make sure there is enough bread for everybody throughout this difficult time.”
