TORONTO, Ontario – April 6, 2017 –  Ben’s® Bakery, Atlantic Canada’s favourite bread, is celebrating more than one century of baking excellence with its 110th anniversary of providing quality and nutritious baked goods to consumers.  A household name amongst Atlantic Canadians, two of the bakery’s traditional favourites – Ben’s® Holsum Fresh White and Wheat bread 500 g – will receive a size makeover to mark this milestone celebration.

Available for a limited time only where Ben’s® bread is sold across Atlantic Canada, beginning April 6, 2017, Ben’s® Bakery will offer the same great taste of Ben’s® Holsum Fresh White and Wheat bread in 630 g packages (four extra slices) for the same price, making it an ideal size for families. While the slices will be wider and shorter, the thickness will remain the same.
