Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented the first slice-and-wrap bread machine in 1928. By 1933, 80% of all bread sold in the US was sliced and wrapped, and the phrase 'the best thing since sliced bread' was born. Sliced bread was first introduced into the UK in the 1930s.

Today, the equivalent of nearly 12 million loaves are sold each day in the UK, with bread being one of our favourite foods. Sandwiches account for 50% of our bread consumption, whether shop bought, or made at home. *

And the great news is, buying bread at Booker Wholesale just got even cheaper, as a wide range of Kingsmill 800gram loaves have now been dropped in price to just 75 pence each, perfect for the independent retailer to sell on to the hungry consumer, and make a solid POR.

With white bread accounting for 76% of the bread sold in the UK, there is a huge selection at this price, including White Medium and Thick, Soft White Farmhouse, Great White Medium and Thick, and the very manly Doorstep - perfect toasted with lashings of butter.

For those more health conscious, the Great Everyday Wholemeal Medium and Thick is the obvious choice, whilst there are also options for the undecided in the 50/50 Medium and Thick Sliced.

So, put your hand in your pocket to part with some 'dough', and click here to buy these great value loaves today.
