about_pic2Ingredients
On creating products, our guiding principle is quality and health. On choosing ingredients, our belief is in natural freshness. We take wholesome herbs: vanilla from the complete bean pod, orange juice or lemon grinds from the whole fruit. There is no place for artificial essence. Jams and jellies are prepared from fresh fruits. We import from speciality sources: fresh cream from Calgary, fruit wines from Quebec, seasonal fruits from local farms, high quality chocolates and flour from renowned processors. We have our insistence when it comes to the ultimate rule of taste and health.

Equipments
There is another secret as to why Saint Germain Bakery has won a loyal trust from its customers. State-of-the-art kitchen equipments are used in the production. The central kitchen set up is not only clean and safe, it is in fact internationally HACCP approved. The system is used at all stages of food production and preparation including packaging and distribution, eliminating the risk of any pollution and hazards being realized.

Design
We believe cakes should be designed as an edible art. We are the first bakery in Canada to offer image and message scanning services on the cake surface. Customers send in photographs, drawings, letters and graphics, and we turn their treasured message and memory into tastefully sweet expressions.

Recognition
Professional skills, accountable management, choice ingredients, cutting edge equipment: all these have won recognitions and many awards for Saint Germain Bakery from the industry. In particular, in the International Culinary Olympics held every four years in Germany, Saint Germain Bakery joined Culinary Team Canada and has won numerous gold and silver medals in the 2004 and 2008 competitions.

At this successful moment, Saint Germain Bakery is looking to expand its market once again, this time to China, where the unique products of Saint Germain Bakery have a distinct winning edge to capture yet another new market.
