International bakery business, St Pierre Groupe, suggests December will be a bumper month for part-baked bread, after record sales of its Paul Hollywood range and a surge in the part-baked category as a whole.

Worth £48m annually, data reviewed by analysts at St Pierre Groupe shows category growth of more than 42 per cent year on year. However, the impact of COVID-19 on consumer shopping habits has fuelled further uplift in the sector, with consumers looking to longer-life products to help reduce the frequency of their shopping trips.

Insight from previous years demonstrates that Christmas is a key sales period for part-baked bread, with rate of sale increasing more than threefold from October to December each year.
