The bakers' friend since 1963
Walker Humphrey has over 50 years’ experience in the craft bakery sector as an independent, family run business. We service large and small UK businesses with our wide range of ambient, chilled and frozen products.
Back in 1964 , Joseph Walker Humphrey, Master Baker and sales representative, founded Walker Humphrey in the small Yorkshire town of Robin Hood. Offering a wealth of experience and expertise, Walker Humphrey proved to be an instant success. After four years Joe relocated premises to Morley. Here he established a family owned, wholesale distribution business, with son David and later, grandson’s Martin and Stewart. Moving from strength to strength, Walker Humphrey has developed from a small family business into a chosen leader in our industry.To this day at Walker Humphrey, everyone is extremely proud to continue to build on Joseph’s legacy.
