- Joe & Dawn Reade were fresh-faced and naïve young graduates of the University of Edinburgh when they started baking bread in a converted garage in Tobermory in 1994
- The local baker was retiring, and the islanders needed someone to keep them in lovely fresh loaves
- In 1996 they bought a shop premises on Tobermory’s colourful Main Street, which became the Island Bakery Delicatessen
- It was through stocking the deli with tempting speciality foods that Dawn realized that there was a bit of a gap in the market for tempting organic biscuits
- Keen to make something that could travel beyond Mull, the Reades thought that biscuits seemed to be an excellent product to introduce to places beyond the island’s shores
- In 2001 Island Bakery Organics was born
- Initially the range had just 4 varieties
- Quality not quantity! The first biscuit customers included Harvey Nichols & Selfridges
- Within the first year the company picked up several Great Taste awards and scooped an Organic Food award
- By 2007, the biscuit side of business had overtaken the deli, and the Reades made the difficult decision to sell their shop to concentrate on biscuits
- Soon afterwards, plans were made to build a new bakery
- The new premises were completed in June 2012
- Powered by local renewable energy – wind and water for electricity, and wood for heating the ovens- the building makes Joe & Dawn feel all grown up now
