We’ve built more than your average high street bakery
When I moved to London I couldn't find any real bread in my local community and was astonished by how little everyone knew about the benefits of sourdough bread. We set up Sourdough Sophia to change the way we consume bread, one loaf at a time. We sell sourdough bread, delicious hand-laminated pastries and well-mannered coffee.
It all started with a simple thought
Who wouldn’t want freshly made sourdough bread and pastries made from scratch every day in their local neighbourhood?
A lockdown community success story
We’ve come a long way
During lockdown Jesse and Sophia delivered 50+ deliveries per day to our local neighbourhood.
Now we serve thousands in our bakery every month.

+50% tax relief on investment
SEIS available but hurry…
The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) allows investors in this round to claim +50% of their investment back in tax relief, but only up to the total value of £200k in this round.
So hurry and be part of the early investors!
Once £200k is reached the enterprise investment scheme (EIS) still allows investors to claim 30% tax relief. We are pre-approved already.
We hope to provide a great return on investment
We're an established and growing brand with a simple, scalable and proven business model. Keen to get in early on a high-growth brand like ours? This is your opportunity.
An investment that's good for the planet
We only have 60 years until the world’s topsoil is eliminated unless we drastically change how we produce and consumer bread. Join our revolution! We only make bread using sustainably sourced ingredients.
It’s incredibly easy to make an investment
If you'd like to be a part of our journey we'll send you a digital investment agreement for us both to sign. Simply review, e-sign, and transfer the funds. The whole process can be completed in minutes.
