Small Business Snapshot: Ozery Bakery

Our Small Business Snapshot series features photos that represent, in just one image, what the small businesses we feature are all about. Alon Ozery, founder of Ozery Bakery, explains how this image represents his business.

Ozery Bakery provides fresh-baked breads with real ingredients that make you feel good about the bread you eat. We have combined traditional methods, international influences, carefully selected ingredients, and a modern sensibility to achieve the great flavor and convenience of baked goods products.

All of our products appeal to people who pay attention to the ingredients in their food choices because they are non-GMO, vegan, Kosher, and do not contain dairy, egg, nuts/tree nuts and soy. In addition, our products use no artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.

Ozery Bakery started as a small family-owned bakery that was born in the back of our downtown Toronto sandwich shop. Demand for our baked goods escalated quickly and we began selling our products to local specialty and health food stores. Soon thereafter, we opened a small commercial bakery to support requests that reached all across Canada and into the U.S.  For the past two decades that Ozery Bakery has been in business, we've prided ourselves on never making compromises and baking great bread from real, premium ingredients.  

We appreciate the honor of cooking, spending time together and bonding as a family, which is represented in this image. This photo encourages creativity and also showcases the versatility of our product, as it can be transformed into a flavorful breakfast spread to share and enjoy or a convenient grab-and-go snack.

The biggest challenge of any baked goods company is the ever-changing nature of consumers' pallets, dietary restrictions and perceptions of bread. We notice that consumers are increasingly on the hunt for healthy snacks since people are eating more frequent, smaller portions. While we have our fan-favorite Morning Rounds, we introduced Snacking Rounds so customers would have the option to buy a snackable version of the product. By operating a nimble business, we're able to quickly satisfy customer's desires.
