A different sourdough

A different taste!


Sourdough can be a baker’s signature: it can make them stand out from the crowd. The sourdough expertise acquired by Lesaffre enables bakery professionals to obtain products tailored to tastes, products that can be adapted anew to the season and to consumers’ needs.

We’d like to share this unique, timeless experience!
