Sunrise Bakery is one of the UK’s oldest family-run Caribbean craft
bakeries. Established in 1966 in Smethwick, Birmingham, the Founders,
Herman Drummond and William Lamont, opened their own business

Three generations on, the bakery has become one of the largest
supplier of Caribbean hard dough bread, cakes, and Jamaican
spiced buns in the UK, producing over two million products annually
across 300 stores, including Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco, and Morrisons.
Sunrise Bakery is now run by Herman’s son, Errol Drummond, and
grandson, Daniel Drummond. Errol believes that at the heart of the
bakery’s success is the business’ commitment to supporting the local
and wider community in the UK and in the Caribbean.

to make our products the gold standard of Caribbean baking.
We recognise that our anniversary wouldn’t be possible without our
customers, and that’s why we have always given back by supporting
social initiatives that aim to empower our communities.”
Daniel, the bakery’s sales and marketing manager, added,
“throughout the next month, we’ll also be delivering our tropical cakes
to the African-Caribbean charities that have supported the elderly
throughout the pandemic.”
As part of their 55th anniversary celebration, Sunrise Bakery will be
launching a new range of vegan cakes and a luxury boxed bun later

customers, the bakery will soon be launching an online store at
