About Us

The Sword family have been bakers for well over a century, and the company (founded in 1894) is still very much owned and managed by the family to this day. 

We have grown from our origins as a small local bakery in the Lanarkshire town of Airdrie to become a modern food manufacturer. We supply both fresh and frozen products to everyone from small shops to supermarkets.
 Our product range still includes traditional lines such as our famous HYRIZE pastry, but it has been extended greatly in recent years to include a variety of bake-off products, as well as a range of frozen pastry products, and cakes.
Our company philosophy is quite simple – we believe in making good quality products, try to use natural ingredients wherever possible , whilst operating to the high standards of hygiene required of a modern food production factory.
Our plant is audited annually against the British Retail Consortium standard.
