SuperValu – Food Academy – From April 2019


Walsh’s Bakehouse is a third generation bakery, making the Waterford Blaa since 1921. The Blaa, a traditional soft white bread roll, dates back to the 1700’s when the French Hugenots came to Waterford. One of the enterprising Hugenots set up a bakery in Waterford City in 1702 where the round bread rolls, now familiar as Blaas, were first made from leftover pieces of bread dough. It is thought the name “Blaa” is derived from the French word “blanc” meaning white.

Since joining the Supervalu Food Academy in 2018, Walsh’s Bakehouse has been given great support as a business through mentoring, workshops and in-store promotions of our product. As proud promoters of local produce, Supervalu have played a key part in the widening popularity of the Waterford Blaa PGI.
