Welcome to Frank
Roberts & Sons Ltd

Welcome to Frank Roberts & Sons. Our family has been in business for four generations, ever since Robert Roberts opened his grocery in Northwich 133 years ago. Nowadays, our two businesses – Roberts Bakery and Little Treats – employ 900 people across two different sites, but our family’s passion for quality, community and baking process remains right at our core. We’re committed to serving the needs of consumers, customers and our communities for generations to come.



“We’re pleased to reassure you that both the Roberts Bakery factory and the Little Treats Bakery are still currently operating as normal. The site is classified as ‘Food Production’ and our staff are classified as key workers during this crisis. The majority of staff are critical to the operating of our factories and so are proudly helping to feed the nation.

During the outbreak of Covid-19 the safety of our customers, staff and suppliers remains a top priority to us, and the usual high standards of hygiene are being maintained – ensuring that all staff are washing their hands as often as possible, have easy access to hand sanitiser and that production lines are sanitised regularly. We continue to follow the instruction given by the government and will keep our customers and suppliers updated if anything changes. We’re wishing good health to all of our colleagues, customers, suppliers and friends. Please look after one another and shop sensibly.”

The Roberts Family, Frank Roberts & Sons

Our company brands

Roberts Bakery

Roberts Bakery

As a family business, we’ve been challenging traditions and shaking up baking since 1887. Whether it’s adding a dash of plum vodka to an unsuspecting teacake or jazzing up a roll with some racy selection of aromatic spices, we always like to take a fresh approach.
