M&S is bringing its frozen garlic bread initiative to its Kingstown Carlisle and Workington stores.

Each day, leftover loaves are transformed into garlic breads by the in-store bakery team and then frozen to extend shelf life by 40 days.

Customers can get their hands on garlic baguettes, sourdough garlic breads, and cheddar and red Leicester garlic cobs among others.

1.4 million of these repurposed loaves were snapped up from M&S stores last year.

Rebecca Winthrop, Store Manager at M&S Kingstown Carlisle, said: "Our in-store bakery team creates the highest quality bread, baked daily for our customers.

"We believe each loaf is too good to waste and our customers agree.

"By getting creative we’ve found a way to extend shelf life and create new delicious products for our customers – at great value too, from £1.

"The scheme has been well received at other stores and we are delighted to now be able to offer these brilliant products to our customers in Kingstown Carlisle and Workington and continue to play our part in reducing food waste."

The initiative is part of M&S’ commitment to halve food waste by 2029/30.

The retailer has also teamed up with Neighbourly to redistribute surplus food to good causes and community groups.
