Paul Bakery -


    Paul is a family company built upon a foundation of time-honoured production methods passed down for five generations.

    It all starts in 1889 when Charlemagne Mayot takes over a small bakery in Croix, near Lille in the North of France. His son Edmond Mayot takes over the family business in 1908. Suzanne Mayot, Edmond's daughter, marries Julien Holder. They move into a bakery on Rue des Sarrazins in Lille.

    PAUL turns 130! And so, does the Eiffel Tower… in the very same year that crowds were flocking to Paris to gaze in awe at the magnificent tower, our first bakery opened for business in a quiet village in Northern France. We’re both still around 130 years later…
