OUR KNÄCKEBRÖD BAKERY
THE SKEDVI BRÖD WAY
Sustainability is one of our core values. And an old one at that, so to speak. Our bread has no additives and the waste we produce during the baking process is next to zero. The dough that is left around the edges of the loaves is put back. Loaves that don’t make the grade for being packaged are broken down into little pieces and sold in boxes as Broken Bread. Left-over flour is driven back to a local farm as fodder for younger livestock. It’s only a small piece of the puzzle but it gives the young livestock a bit of oomph, says the farmer with a glint in his eye.
Bread that is overbaked or that breaks is also sorted out. This becomes our “liquor bread”.
Our baking process obviously requires fire, meaning we also need wood. The wood we use is waste wood from sawmills in our local area. Our wood-fired ovens also help to heat up the rest of the factory. For many years, there’s been a vision of being able to do something with the waste heat from our ovens. This also gave birth to a dream of a greenhouse connected to the factory - a greenhouse that has now been built! We are continuing to work on it so that in the near future we can use the leftover heat from our ovens to heat the greenhouse. We like the idea of recycling. This is sustainability the Skedvi Bröd way.
