Kelvin Ellam
Baker

How long have you been working at Marriage's?

I’ve worked at Marriage’s for 11 years and have been a baker for 25 years in total. Before I joined Marriage’s, I worked in family run bakeries and at an in-store bakery as well.

What does your job involve?

I’m Marriage’s technical baker. No day is the same - I might be test baking loaves, or doing a New Product Development project in the bakery; or I could be testing wheats and flours in our laboratory. I’m also often travelling around visiting customers’ bakeries or answering technical queries over the phone.

What do you Like about working at Marriage's?

I like working here because every day is different and I’m always learning something new. I’ve been lucky that over the years I’ve worked on a farm, in bakeries and in a flour mill, which means I’ve seen how the whole process from field to fork fits together.

What is your favourite bread?

Tough question! It’s either a traditional tin loaf or a sourdough that I’ve baked myself.
