Michael Hassetts’ passion for baking developed during his time working across Europe, as a trained chef in the early 80s. On returning to Ireland, Michael started his own bakery based in Douglas, Cork in 1984. This was a small wholesale bakery producing confectionery with a strong continental influence for the retail sector. Encouraged by the market uptake, he went on to open his first shop in 1988 producing quality products using only the best of fine local ingredients. In 1995, Michael expanded into the nearby town of Carrigaline.
“ I believe good quality food produced locally is the secret to our success so far. We’ve proven that our passion and respect for the art of artisan baking and confectionery can stand the test of time. We are now committed to delivering our craft far and wide”
