Artisan breads in Australia

Baking high quality, speciality bread is not new to Wild Breads.

Back in 1997 it was difficult to find rustic, European-style sourdough loaves in Australia. So we decided to bake our own and Sol Breads was born.

Our first handmade stone-baked sourdough bread, a Campagne loaf, was made from simple, wholesome ingredients at our humble premises in a converted garage. Word got around and we quickly moved to larger premises, selling our authentic artisan breads to wholefoods stores, specialty shops and markets.

Today, Sol Breads is part of the Wild Breads family, along with Nomad Breads and Wild Breads Food Service division.

Wild Breads is a dynamic wholesale bakery and our bread range has grown from stone-baked organic sourdough to artisan flatbreads, exotic flavoured loaves and rustic gluten free breads, with many other interesting and delicious products in development.

We still use the simplest, freshest ingredients possible.

And while you can still buy our breads at your local wholefoods store or market, our Sol Breads and Nomad Breads brands are now also stocked in Australia’s leading supermarkets.

Next stop, the world!

Wholesale baker of healthier breads

Each and every Wild Breads product is crafted in a state of the art baking facility complying with the strictest hygiene and food safety standards.

Wild Breads’ ideologies play an important role in the development of new products and processes. We choose clean eco-technology and green products and services where possible. And because we care about your health and the environment, Wild Breads products are proudly made with:

No GMO Ingredients | No Trans Fats | No High Fructose Corn Syrup | No Palm Oil.

We also use only 100% Australian wheat.  But the most important ingredient in our bread isn’t our flour. It’s our bakers. Our team of highly skilled bakers are recruited from around the globe and bring with them exceptional bread making traditions and techniques.
