Welcome to the Worshipful Company of Bakers
The Bakers' Company can trace its origins back to 1155 and is the City of London's second oldest recorded guild.
The Company’s membership is drawn from those living and working in the City of London; from those working in the Baking Industry or Allied Trades and from those who wish to support charitable activities and see history and tradition maintained.
The Bakers’ Company continues to be closely involved with the baking trade and a high proportion of its members are Master Bakers or Allied Traders.
However, an equally high proportion have City, not Trade, backgrounds. Both are equally welcome as this combination of backgrounds enriches the Company.
Through the Benevolent Fund and individual member’s activities the Company is heavily involved in charitable works.
