A major fire has left a kosher bakery unable to maintain supplies to supermarkets.
Less than an hour before the start of Shavuot last weekend, fire tore through the Sharon’s Bakery warehouse in Tottenham, North London, gutting the entire building.
Although the bakery’s individual stores, based in Edgware, Hendon, Stamford Hill and Barkingside, were unaffected, its wholesale operation, which was run from the warehouse, had to be halted.
This has left Sainsbury’s in Finchley Road, London, without supplies of kosher bread.
