One of the main missions at Bright Star Bakery is to first and foremost satisfy the needs of those with dietary restrictions. If you or a loved one suffers from Celiacs, Gluten-Intolerance, Diabetes or Lactose Intolerance we can help. We work in a dedicated gluten-free facility so you can be rest assured there is not gluten in your delicious baked good. If you or a loved one chooses to eat a diet of vegan, Ketogenic, Paleo, Grain-Free or Cane Sugar Free to save the animals, heal your gut or simply because it make you feel better we are here for you. And with our baked goods it truly does not feel like a sacrifice!
In addition to helping humans in need our motivation is also to help the planet and animals. Since we are primarily vegan we are taking a part in helping to save the animals, conserve massive amount of water and pollution that is consumed in the meat and dairy industry and voting for justice with every purchase we make. We do not use palm oil under any circumstance because even if it says organic, this product is not strongly regulated and therefore although "vegan" most likely is an unethical product that supports rainforest deforestation and the killing and disregard of orangutans. Our mission is to end the suffering in the world, whether it be your belly, our natural resources or the animals, we do what we can when we can! When you buy from us you support the future of all beings. Yay!
And lastly we are dedicated to providing not only a living wage for our employees but also a peaceful, joyous and supportive atmosphere to work in that brings balance and harmony to their system and ours.
The long term vision is to open our own space that is sunny, bright, peaceful and airy. This space will be made of repurposed and natural materials such as brick, marble, glass, tile and wood (as little stainless steel as possible!) In this way we hope that it demonstrates our motivation to create a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere to work. We will continue to have a dedicated gluten-free facility, utilize locally sourced and/or organic fresh ingredients that are combined in a balanced, flavorful, fresh way; setting a new reputation for the taste of gluten-free, vegan and cane sugar free baked goods.
In this space, we will aim to realize our dream of creating a harmonious supportive baking environment that people enjoy working for and visiting when picking up their special orders. We still aim to be working all of the Rogue Valley and Grants Pass Farmers Markets. We are motivated to further our vision of satisfying the needs of those with Dietary Restrictions and diseases and those without! We hope to expand our wholesale account to make our product more available once our facility allows us the space and economics to do so. When you purchase something from us you are helping support us to build our dreams.
Ingredients with integrity
We bake with ingredients that we use in our own home kitchen. From product quality, sustainable packaging and living wages to aim to run our business the best we can.
The belief at Bright Star Bakery is that ingredient quality is more important than profit. We care about cause and consequence, not only about you eating the food but about how choices reflect in the overall sustainability of the planet and for future generations. We are not perfect but we try our best and aim each year to improve and get better and better as we learn more and more!
To retain our employees we do check ins to help open the doors of communication; communicating about how they are doing and how we are doing in relation to their needs and goals. We provide a living wage and a supportive harmonious working environment.
We do our best to minimize waste by purchasing in bulk, sourcing locally and/or organically, purchasing biodegradable packaging and reusing and recycling. Each year we add more sustainable packaging to our product list. This year we are excited to announce we have added biodegradable parchment paper and soap!
