Established in 1946, Bells of Lazonby was founded by John Bell – a man with a fighting spirit who made it through WW2 after his aircraft was shot down over Germany. Upon his return, he moved to Lazonby with his family and set up a small bakery and shop, attached to their home, to provide an income for the family.

Nowadays we are divided into two unique brands, Bells of Lazonby and We Love Cake. Both brands are well established and equally well known for producing delicious baked goods for customers and stockists alike.
