Since 1997, Ann and Jackie from Avalon have been baking artisanal baked goods using 100% organic flour, like the very popular Wheaty Wheat bread:

Avalon International Breads is a “right livelihood business” which means they have three bottom lines that inform every aspect of the business.  Here they are, from the Avalon Website:

Earth
Our promise: 100% organic flour in everything we make, every day. Our commitment: organic ingredients when possible, local ingredients whenever feasible, and environmentally friendly practices at every opportunity.

Community
We aspire to create an oasis of healing and compassion in a world that is sorely in need. We support organizations and projects that create a healthier, more vibrant Detroit.

Employees
Commitment to the health and well being of our employees means fair wages, good benefits and an environment that encourages growth. By working at a “right livelihood business,” all of us at Avalon benefit from an opportunity to live a life bigger than ourselves.

We’re really excited to support a ton of local bakeries like Avalon.  If you’re not totally in heaven when you walk through our bakery, walk through again and ask for a sample.
