Fuel Bakery


[Friut loaf from Fuel Bakery]

Fuel Bakery used to produce a wonderful fruit & nut bread which I bought from direct from the factory and enjoyed toasting at my desk. 

This is the view of the bakery that I see. I used to visit at about 04:30 on a Saturday
morning and buy two or three loaves to keep in the freezer at work.

Inside, they're often busy getting orders out, with numerous boxes stacked up.

When I arrived they'd be getting ready to start the next baking cycle.

Now they don't make bread any more. There's apparently more profit in this sort of product:

The proprieter, Keith, will always find time to have a chat, even when he's really busy. I reckon he's probably a good person to work for - he's certainly been very kind to me over the years. He's a bit quirky - he doesn't own a car, and enjoys surfing, even in mid-winter. He is very proud of his family, and he often tells me about his son, who is highly ranked in ultra-endurance & triathalon events.

I know many of Keith's staff have been with the company for a long time. One of his delivery drivers (Nick) sometimes passes me in the night when I'm running to work. Nick always sounds his horn as he passes.
