About the Trust

The Trades in Edinburgh have been undergoing a renaissance recently and as part of this the Incorporation of Baxters have formed a separate Charitable Trust.

The Incorporation of Bakers of Edinburgh Charitable Trust is a registered charity (SC047164) whose purpose is the advancement of baking education, arts, heritage, culture and science.

Our core activity is to award small grants to bakers and other organisations who fulfil our Trust purposes.
