Soreen

Soreen is firmly established as Britain’s number one malt loaf, with its growing family of delicious fruit and malted products.

About Soreen

It was in 1938 that a gentleman named John Sorensen first developed the soft, sticky, moreish malt loaf made to a top secret recipe.

In 1939 the bakery had turned into a successful business with one oven, four bakery staff and two shop assistants.

Aside from the mixing, all products were made by hand and delivered in small sales vans to local shops within a five mile radius.

The secret’s in the squidge. Throughout our range of products, malt is a key element. The unique and clever use of malt is one of the reasons Soreen Malt Loaf is such a favourite as Malt helps give Soreen its brown colouring and unique sticky texture that everyone has come to love. The health properties of products containing malt or malt extract are often overlooked. In actual fact malt is a great, healthy source of natural energy, it’s also high in vitamins, minerals and trace elements too. That’s why Soreen Malt Loaf is a great snack for all today’s hungry, health conscious consumers.

Our other products include a Toastie loaf, a range of moist fruit loaves bursting with fruit pieces; Banana, Apple & Sultana, Fruity Five and Orange and a range of seasonal products. 
The malt helps give Soreen its brown colouring and the unique sticky texture that everyone has come to love. With innovation being a key focus since 2009, Soreen has successfully developed a range of snacking formats to fit the needs of our busy consumers including Lunchbox Loaves, Pre-Buttered Snack packs and Mini Loaves.
