Our Story.

The beginning of a sweet partnership.

Truly great bakery demands much from the baker. Cracking eggs, sifting flour, kneading dough, crimping crusts. Each detail requires close attention and hours in the kitchen–luxuries you don’t always have. Which is why you can trust Sara Lee Frozen Bakery for all of your foodservice and retail dessert and bakery needs. We’re experts in creating irresistible foods and superior value so you can focus on all of the other important things.

Backed by hard-working brands.

With four trusted brands – Sara Lee®, Van’s®, Bistro Collection® and Chef Pierre® – we offer a wide variety of versatile bakery product flavors and formats full of delicious goodness. We use the finest ingredients and time-honored recipes just like you would at home.

The love keeps growing.

Sara Lee® desserts have always delivered incredible flavor and value in the frozen food aisle and foodservice channel. Now, for the first time in 60 years, we’re operating independently as Sara Lee Frozen Bakery. What started as a small Chicago bakery has transformed into a collection of popular frozen bakery and snacking – united in quality and innovation – to bring better to your table every single day.
