Meet CAB Foods

When our grandmother made it her business to keep her grandchildren occupied, she laid the foundation for the business we today call CAB Foods. Around her kitchen table, we learned the ins and outs of baking, decorating cookies, and licking out the mixing bowl. This translated into a love of baking that has been handed down through generations.

CAB Foods, our multifaceted business, run by a family of bakers, for bakers, was officially found in 2004 and has been growing from strength to strength ever since.


At CAB Foods we understand that baking is amazing, therapeutic and requires skill, but also that life is too short to spend hours in the kitchen. We’re here to help you achieve boulangerie level baking, with time left to put your feet up and enjoy a cup of tea.

How do we do this? Easy. With the best, most innovative range of products any baker could dream of, readily available at any of our five stores, or to order via our online shop. We are here to help you create those memorable experiences that start in your kitchen and continue to live on in the hearts of your loved ones through a selection of world-class ingredients, equipment and tools, as well our own range of inventive, easy to use products. We do this because baking, in essence, creates joy, and we want to help you achieve your own joy through cooking and baking, the same way our grandmother did for us.

The CAB Foods range of dry Premixes have all the goodness and authenticity of our traditional family recipes, jammed into fresh-sealed packaging, and ready for you to stir up and pop in the oven within a matter of minutes. No mess, no fuss, and no measuring of dry ingredients required.

Even notoriously tricky bakes, like red-velvet cake, macarons and gluten-free bread are included in our range of easy-to-use premixes, so anyone can feel like a super-hero baker.

In addition, we offer a wide range of delicious Pipe-and-Bake Batters you can literally pour into a pan and pop in the oven. Not to mention our scrumptious Ready-to-Bake cookie doughs and pastries. Whilst you chew on that, consider this; our exclusive range of Premixed icings, available in a range of colours and flavours, is ready to spread, smear or pipe onto any of your baked creations the moment you snip open the packet!

The CAB Foods range of Premixes offers must-have convenience and never-fail confidence to any beginner baker, but even big-league caterers, bakeries and businesses have realised the benefits of having our never-flop, time-saving products on hand, making us a well-known trade secret.

For those who need a bit of guidance on the creative side, we even developed a range of pre-packed Baking Kits containing everything you need for imaginative projects, like baking the perfect Rainbow Cake, Funfetti Vanilla Cake or Unicorn Doughnuts (no kidding).

We enjoy these tastings around the very kitchen table she taught her grandchildren the love of Cooking And Baking at all those years ago.

Happy Cooking And Baking with CAB Foods.
