BAKO South Eastern is part of, BAKO Group, which distributes bakery products to customers across the UK from three national depots. With a multi-temperature fleet of over 70 vehicles, the company provides independent bakers and caterers with a wide range of ingredients and finished products from quality suppliers, as well as its own BAKO Select branded range.

Bako South Eastern managing director Nick Harris said: “Having analysed our customer base across the South East, we have identified a new generation of bakeries found predominantly within the M25 that will benefit especially from a premium service offering, with easy ordering and 24-hour delivery.

“BAKO South Eastern is in a particularly strong position to service this market due to the strategic positioning of our depot and strong supplier relationships. As well as providing a new level of fast turnaround delivery, the BAKO DIRECT product range has been developed specifically to satisfy the needs and wants of the new generation of bakers, and we will be seeking to develop the range ongoing.”
