About the employer

What started as a necessity has grown into a passion. Belle & Wilde was founded by a mum and daughter, Grail and Annabelle, who were struggling to find gluten-free bread that also tasted delicious.

So they decided to make it themselves. And that was how the Belle & Wilde Bakery was born, dedicated to developing delicious gluten-free and wheat-free products, made with fresh, natural ingredients and no preservatives. 

Savoury snacks and sweet treats.

From artisan toasts for dips, canapés and cheese to their range of delicious cakes, oat bars and brownies, all of Belle & Wilde’s products are suitable for vegetarians, and many are also vegan-friendly.

Based in the Sussex countryside we deliver straight to customer’s doors.
