Honest Bakery is a dedicated gluten-free bakery and sister company of Molloy’s Bakery; both are located in Abbeytown, Co. Roscommon. Mark and Jackie-Ann have taken over the running of Honest, which is located approximately one mile away Molloy’s Bakery which is run by their parents, Declan and Mary T. Molloy. Having two separately located premises in the town is essential to ensure no cross contamination occurs in the gluten-free bakery.
The company’s ethos is to run a profitable business where sustainability plays a key role; providing for the present but not compromising future generations. Despite commercial scale, everything is hand-made in small batches using only the finest ingredients. Building on the success of its mini-cakes, Honest has expanded its product range to include gluten-free biscuits, cantucci, fresh bread, tarts, and rocky road.
Mark Molly, a fourth generation baker, feels that bringing Origin Green into the Honest business as early as they did helped them become more efficient, streamline processes, and plan their operations better. Mark believes that this future-proofed his business and helped it grow in a more sustainable way.
As a verified member of Origin Green, the Molloy family have developed a sustainability plan for both bakeries that follow the Origin Green Sustainability Charter. Key targets fall under the three pillars of the Charter; raw materials sourcing, manufacturing processes, and social sustainability.
