gives us the right to call
ourselves the Baker’s AUTHORITY

Most companies don’t have the experience, product selection, or vendor contacts to claim they are the authoritative source for their industry. We have it all. We are the Baker’s Authority.

 

 

EXPERIENCE
Since 1917 spanning four generations, we have been supplying and distributing bakery products to commercial and home bakers. Flour, sugar, eggs, butter: a century later some ingredients simply don’t change. One thing did change: your ever-decreasing available time.  Bakers choose Baker’s Authority because they know we’re their one-stop-shop that will save them precious time. 

Product Selection
So how do we have a better selection than anyone else? Because over 3000 products means we stock everything. Everything. Perishable staples like butter, milk, and eggs? That too: our giant freezer stocks all your dairy & frozen bakery needs. How big is a 91,000 square foot warehouse? Think Costco or Sam’s Club. Our product variety includes:

  • Specialty imports like Spanish pine nuts
  • Hispanic cuisine items like guava filling & dulce de leche for this growing market
  • Organic & Non-GMO foods for the hipster foodies
  • Pantry essentials like vinegar, tomato paste, & canned beans.
  • Bakery paper supplies like cake boxes & labels, because your final presentation is the first impression.
  • Bakery tools & equipment from your every day rolling pins to the hard to find cannoli stick.
  • Janitorial supplies from mops & brooms to soap & dispensers. Because cleanliness matters in the food industry.

VENDOR CONTACTS
Four generations later, our family-owned business has the experience and contacts in the bakery industry to supply our clients with any hard to find item on their shopping list.  Our “Baker’s Concierge” will source or locate any product not listed on our website to complete your order, making Baker’s Authority the one-stop-shop for any commercial or home baker.
