If you’re a regular reader of ours you will know of our love of Marks and Spencer’s however we feel the need to tell you about a story which makes us proud of a local family run bakery in Northern Ireland.
McErlain’s bakery in Magherafelt County Derry is run by six brothers, who are all bakers. They produce a range of bread and cakes under the brand called Genesis Crafty. They also supply “own brand” goods to major supermarkets. The business was established by their parents in 1968 and thrived ever since. All six brothers are involved in the day to day running of the bakery which we feel is especially great.
