Our History

From a traditional family bakery in Floriana back in 1946, to the state-of-the-art facility the company currently operates from in San Gwann, Golden Harvest has always been at the forefront of the Maltese bread industry. Since its inception over 70 years ago, the company has always strived to achieve the best possible quality in all of their products, while continuously engaging in R&D to develop innovative products for the Maltese market.

The company, which is now managed by third generation family members, specializes in bakery items and sweet confectionery products, while also boasting an ice-cream department and the most recent investment: a Gluten Free department. It is the only company in Malta fitted with a tailor-designed, high quality setup that can produce Gluten Free products in a completely secure environment. To ensure full product safety, the department is equipped with a HEPA filtration system that guarantees full air filtering that controls and eliminates possible airborne wheat particles. The in-house quality assurance team and food technologists also conduct thorough testing for each batch produced before certifying absence of gluten and positive releasing into the market.

Today, its 150 employees ensure 70,000 of the best quality products are produced daily and distributed around the Maltese islands using their fleet of 25 vehicles. All this is done by using the latest technology and the company’s unwavering commitment to adhering to the highest quality standards of operations, which have consistently been certified by the American Institute of Baking and the British Retail Consortium (BRC). Amongst their long list of clients, they also supply well renowned companies such as Burger King, KFC, Jordan’s Ryvita and Lidl.

As an effort to protect the environment, the company also gets 10% of its energy consumption through the 90 kilowatts of photovoltaic panels installed at the facility, while also practicing waste separation and water recycling.

It is through adhering to these guiding principles that Golden Harvest continues to grow and thrive, whilst looking at the future with the same enthusiasm and adventurous spirit as shown by those that founded the company.
