No Hurdle Too High For Growing Organic Bakery

March 21, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Pennsylvania’s three-year-old Lancaster Food Co. is a case study in how resolute entrepreneurs on a mission can find ways to reach their goal. The company’s founders are determined to make and sell high-quality organic bread while paying a living wage to their workers. In a state where the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, Lancaster Food pays $15.00. They often hire people with criminal records. They ran into numerous obstacles – a certified organic operation requires special equipment and extra audits – especially when they decided to move to larger facilities. They struggled to get their loaves into retail outlets. But they, and their investors, persevered. Lancaster’s six varieties of organic sandwich bread are sold in more than 125 stores and restaurants from Virginia to New York.[ Image credit: © Lancaster Food Co. ]
