Bakery manufacturer and ingredient supplier Dawn Foods announced that Dooher’s Bakery of Campbellford, Ontario is the winner of its second annual Sweetest Bakery in Canada contest.

Dawn Foods invited communities across Canada to cast their vote from April 1 – July 31 and help their favorite bakery win the title of Sweetest Bakery in Canada. Nearly 300 bakeries participated in the competition.

“As part of our longstanding commitment to helping our customers grow their business, the goal of this friendly competition is to help boost sales, drive traffic in-store and make our customers’ bakeries top of mind in their local communities,” says Angie Goldberg, chief marketing officer for Dawn Foods.

Dooher’s Bakery has served the community of Campbellford, Ontario for nearly 70 years and is focused on creating and refining family recipes.


“It’s an incredible feeling to be named the Sweetest Bakery in Canada,” says Cory Dooher, owner of Dooher’s Bakery. “As a third-generation owner, I know my grandparents – who started Dooher’s in 1949 – have been watching over us. We’re completely lost for words and can’t say enough to the community that supported us throughout this contest and to our amazing staff. We couldn’t have done this without them.”

Pontiac Home Bakery of Shawville, Quebec, took top honors in eastern Canada, and The Rolling Pin Bakery of Hope, B.C., was the top in western Canada.
