This is bread where the ingredients are mixed together without yeast and left to stand for several days, this helps to give the bread a richer, chewier texture and far more distinct flavor that has proved very popular with customers. Here at Fosters we have our own fermentation tanks which allows us to make our very own sourdough products completely from scratch. We bake this sourdough into a number of different loaves to help create the perfect artisan sandwhich breads.
