BakersArms-150x150One of the oldest trades known to man, the Bakers have been at the heart of the Aberdeen business community throughout the existence of the Seven Incorporated Trades.

As one of the few professions to have stayed true to its original form, the trade is steeped in history and current members can trace their roots back through the generations as familiar family names remain prominent.

Quality control has always been a key to success in the trade, with each Aberdeen baker historically using a unique identifying stamp to mark their produce. Fines were meted out to those who used inferior flour or who failed to meet stringent regulations on weight – a mark of the attention to detail which is carried throughout all Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen to this day.
