Michael Hassets’ passion for baking developed during his time working across Europe as a trained chef in the 80s. On returning to Ireland, Michael opened his first bakery and 35 years on, Hassetts now offers a wide range of products including artisan breads and confectionary. Hassetts holds numerous awards including Blas na hEireann, Great Taste Award, Artisan Business of the Year, Best Cork Export Business and, most recently, Best Cork Family Business. Hassetts pride themselves on using locally sourced ingredients to create exciting and innovative flavours and textures to create their range of artisan breads and confectionary: cakes, desserts, biscuits, crackers, granolas, chocolates & ice creams to wholesale, retail and export markets.
“ It's hard to beat a good honest white pan and sumptuous apple tart. We also favour the infamous Jelly Star Biscuit, Chocolate Slices, Croissants and many more ... The Ginger Bread Man is a big hit with the kids.”
