(CFINE) promotes health and addresses food poverty by increasing access to
affordable, healthy food. It does this by supporting Community Food
outlets and providing a ‘Fast Fruit’ service to schools, nurseries and
other community facilities in Aberdeen.
All our breads are freshly baked on the premises at Crannach Coffee Shop,
Cambus O’ May, Ballater, using organic ingredients and a small amount of
sea salt with no additives or preservatives.
The inspiration for our bread came from small village bakeries of the past
and present who believe in taking time over making bread. The traditional
slow fermentation process used to make Crannach bread is responsible for
the development of a good crust, aroma, taste and digestibility - appeals
to all the senses in one bite!
