BreadHive: a co-op community Bakery.
Emily Stewart, and Victoria Kuper, who founded BreadHive with Allison Ewing to create good jobs in Buffalo for themselves and others, will be the presenters at The Nancy Haberman Gacioch Entrepreneurship Lecture Series March 4, 2014 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Wick Campus Center Alumni Lounge.
Simply put, BreadHive is a worker co-op owned and operated by its workforce. The workers are the owners and they focus on providing quality employment that fairly compensates workers. "We own our own bakery. We make the bread of your dreams. Weâre funded by the community." Baking bread on Buffalo's West Side out of a building just large enough for production. The process is based around several tenets of the "artisan" style of bread baking, including a steam injected oven and a long, refrigerated rise which allows the dough to ferment and develop its maximum flavor and nutritional potential. BreadHive shapes the bread by hand, using organic flour, and are committed to sourcing ingredients as locally as possible.
