Our mission isto create a healthier, better tomorrow – with bread!
Chabaso Bakery has been a leader in the artisan bread movement and is embarking on a new chapter of growth and innovation. We are committed to not only making a high-quality bread but also to fostering a high-quality work environment and future for our employees, whose energy and creativity continue to be our greatest asset. Our commitment extends further to the New Haven community where we have built our family business since 1995. We endeavor to continue to have a positive environmental and social impact through our work.
Chabaso is the leading Artisan Bread Brand in the Northeast. We are expanding nationally. Chabaso is a closely held family company whose Founder is still actively engaged in the business. In the past year and a half new outside professional management has joined Chabaso to prepare for growth and increase both profitability and impact. It is a challenging and exciting time. Our CFO, who has been with the company for three years, contributed significantly to improve the company’s financial sophistication. He has been a great partner but is retiring to California. An Acting Controller will be managing the accounting and control during this search. Systems are stable and working well.
