WHY Brownberry®?


Back in 1946, you couldn’t find the premium, wholesome bread that we love today. That is, until Catherine Clark came along and changed that. She believed in a better loaf of bread. Not those sad, nutritionless slices—nothing more than a vehicle for peanut butter—but a hearty, feel-good experience with awesome flavor and texture. Bread that you’d want to bake if you had the time to make home-baked bread. She got herself an oven, a mixer, a second-hand delivery truck, and an old grocery store; and she rolled up her sleeves. Catherine used freshly milled wheat and an old Wisconsin recipe passed down through generations. Batch by batch, her good, old-fashioned wheat bread came out of the oven looking “brown as a berry.” It was so good, her friends urged her to sell rather than give it away for free. Brownberry® Ovens was founded, and bread was changed forever. Today, though Catherine no longer makes it herself, Brownberry® is still committed to bringing you awesomely delicious and nutritious bread you can believe in— so you can live your life and love your loaf.

Every slice of Brownberry® Bread is made with high-quality ingredients, just the way Catherine wanted it. We use no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors, and many varieties are made with whole grains. (Whole grains are any grain that includes 100% of the original kernel. Yup, the whooole thing.) That’s how we bring you a more nutritious and delicious loaf that’s hearty but soft—bread that we’re proud to bake, and that you’re proud to buy. If you are what you eat, then you’re pretty awesome. And now we have even more to take pride in: our company, Bimbo Bakeries USA, has been named 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Bread and the environment are two things Bimbo Bakeries USA is most passionate about, so it’s a huge honor to be recognized as a leader in energy management within the baking industry.
