Our Origins

Our Origins

The Trust has links with the Incorporation of Bakers [or Baxters] of the City of Edinburgh, one of the City Trades originating in mediaeval times. The Incorporation still exists and promotes good, independent baking in Edinburgh. The Trust, a separate body and a Scottish charity, was formed in 2017 to act as a grant making fund.
