Welcome to Bre&d

Bre&d is a community based non-profit organisation established in September 2001 to increase awareness of the Bathurst region and its produce. Bre&d encourages both visitors and residents to experience the unique eats and drinks of the Bathurst region resulting in stimulation of the local economy and community interest in food. The organisation has an active membership of about 30 core volunteers plus business houses and general members. These figures are growing exponentially from year to year with the continual support from the community, local businesses and schools.
