A BARNSLEY-BASED bakery is celebrating its 80th year with rising orders for the likes of John Lewis and Asda.

Family-run White's Bakery, founded in 1934, manufactures a wide range of cakes, cookies and bread products for wholesale and retail customers.

The business, which has seen a steep increase in orders in the last four years, now has a turnover of £2.6 million and employs 56 people at its Worsbrough Bridge bakery and four South Yorkshire shops.

Recent new orders include a contract to design and bake Victorian gingerbread figures - gentlemen and ladies - to celebrate John Lewis’ 150th anniversary.

This is not the first time White's has baked for the department store as they also produced ‘The Bear and the Hare’ biscuits which accompanied the retail giant's Christmas campaign in 2013.

Another order will see more than 200,000 Madeira cakes baked by White's on the shelves of Asda stores in Scotland and Northern Ireland in the run up to Christmas this year.

Managing director David White said: "We are responsive to our customers’ needs, whether that means creating bespoke novelty biscuits, following regulated ingredient guidelines for schools or fulfilling bulk orders of cakes."
