Cybros the Sprouted Bakehouse, a Waukesha-based producer of fresh sprouted grain breads, announced that it will use only non-genetically modified grains, natural sunflower oil, and locally sourced domestic honey in all of its bread products.
The company also announced it is changing its name to Angelic Bakehouse to better reflect the wholesome goodness of its breads and will look for a new location to accommodate an expansion.
Owners Jenny and James Marino said the ingredient upgrades and name change are part of a series of moves that position the family-owned company for continued growth and potential national distribution opportunities, while maintaining the product purity and quality customers have come to expect.
Angelic Bakehouse’s improved products recently made their debut – with all-new packaging, updated nutritional information and a new “Oh so pure” tagline.
Jenny Marino said the company’s sales have tripled since the Marinos bought the Bakehouse in 2009.
“The GMO-free movement is really gaining steam among health-conscious consumers,” she said. “As a family, we believe in it and, as business owners, we saw a tremendous opportunity to get ahead of the curve. We’re making great sprouted grain breads even better and our company even stronger with higher-quality ingredients that have wonderful taste and real appeal in today’s marketplace.
James Marino said Angelic Bakehouse also recently attained the OK-Pas Yisroel Kosher Certification.
To match its new opportunities, the company is finalizing plans to select a southeastern Wisconsin location for a new, 22,000-square-foot facility that it will occupy by the end of the year. Jenny Marino said the new facility will offer the company the opportunity to increase production, expand product lines and pursue additional channels.
