About Us

Our dynamic team here at Blackfriars have been specialising in making and baking delicious long shelf life, ambient, individually wrapped bakery products including flapjacks, muffins, cake slices, cookies and much more since the late 1980s. All of our products are proudly manufactured to the highest quality standards at our BRC accredited bakery in Leicestershire, in the UK.

We are very proud of our Leicestershire roots, our production facilities started in a small bakery site on ‘Blackfriars Street’ in the heart of Leicester city. We are now based in South Wigston where our production facility has trebled from our humble beginnings. Both our production and warehouse facilities are all together on the same site, as well as our office departments.  

If you have ever wondered who that 'cool dude' is within our Blackfriars logo, then meet 'Fred the Friar'. Fred has been our iconic Friar since the early 90s, evolving his look and style as times have passed. Most of our customers recognise our products globally because of Fred and his delicious product range.

Not only do we make our own delicious products, but we also manufacture other own branded products too. This includes Gluten & Dairy Free Snack Bars, High Protein Bars, Special Dietary Bars and more. If you would like Blackfriars to produce your own products, then please get in touch, our New Product Development team would love to hear from you!
