About Us

Baked Earth Bakery Ltd are an award winning UK based manufacturer of THE finest breads. What started life as a naan bread producer, is now a modern bakery, creating a whole range of authentic and globally inspired breads. We are still family owned and family run but have a fantastic team made up of technical and sales professionals to engineers and production staff (and everything in between).
We sell our products to customers around the world and are always on the lookout for new opportunities.

Our Story

We’ve been baking brilliant breads since the early 1970s when we created our first naans using our top secret recipe. The Butt family opened Nottingham’s very first curry house and customers just couldn’t get enough of our flatbreads so when we realised we were on to something, we opened a dedicated bakery and we’ve never looked back!
Since then our talented team of bakers, technical masterminds and skilled production staff have taken inspiration from around the world to bring a delicious range of breads to the UK. From Asian naans to Greek pittas, Turkish flatbreads to American sub rolls, Lebanese flatbreads to Asian rotis and a whole lot more, our international adventures continue…
Today, our modern bakery produces millions of baked products a year. We still take pride in the individual skills it takes to make our products. And we still believe we make the best naan breads in the UK!


We opened the first curry house in Nottingham in the 1970s.
There are now over 150 restaurants in the area.


We can make 20,000 flat breads an hour per production line.


We make over 50 different products from a BRC AA approved site.
