WHY Arnold®?

From the sunbaked fields where our seeds are grown to the busy homes where our bread is served, we strive to make a positive impact every day. It’s a philosophy that extends beyond our bread to the world around us. We consistently work to improve the quality of our ingredients, reduce our carbon footprint, and give back to the communities we serve.

 

It all started back in 1940, when Dean and Betty Arnold opened their own bakery out of a tiny house in Stamford, CT. Back then, you couldn’t find the premium bread that we love today. By starting small, the couple were able to give each brick-oven-baked loaf the attention it deserved. Today, though Dean and Betty no longer make it themselves, Arnold® is still committed to bringing you bread you can believe in—so you can live your life and love your loaf.

It’s a philosophy that extends beyond our bread to the world around us.
