In 1966 Alexander Baird Immigrated to Canada from Scotland bringing all of our traditional family recipes from our Family Bakery in Scotland which was established in 1914.
After having our first retail location going for approx. 2 years he then decided to open a butcher location in Scarborough, On.
Once that location was running smoothly he then decided to move the Bake House to Pickering. Currently both of those locations are still running and in Celebvration of our 50th Anniversary we decided to open a third retail location in Whitby, On.
My mother Helen and Father John had been running the business for the last 35 years.
As for myself I have been involved in the business since I was little pricing groceries then graduating to putting the cherries on the Empire Biscuits. Once I was of age to work I served customers in the front shop of our Scarborough location, In the early 2000 I worked full time at our Scarborough Location managing the store then my father thought me how to do all the butchering. In the same year the volume of our product being made grew so large that we had to purchase a building to strictly do our baking out of. Luckily because in 2010 the Government implemented new rules and regulations in order to wholesale meat items. Whether they are raw meat items such as our sausage or prepared meat items like our famous Scotch Pies. We then did a complete renovation of the processing plant to meet the standards for our licensing to distribute meat items. Making us now Provincially Licenced with CFIA and OMAFRA at that time I was transferred to the plant to manage and run the meat department which I have been doing for the last 3 years. However as of Jan of 2012 my parents have retired and I am continuing the family tradition.
I have removed myself from the Meat Processing Room and now more hands on deck so to speak. Going from location to location and location ensuring everything is running smoothly giving a hand if needed and making sure ALL our product is going out with the highest quality and standards.
All of our products are made from scratch fresh on a daily basis with no added preservatives!!
