OWNERS of the Toowoomba Born and Bread Bakery Brad and Alison Reeves have once again risen to the occasion, taking out the coveted King of the Bakers crown for the fifth time.

Proving they are on a roll, the bakery won nine of the 11 major awards at the 2012 Toowoomba Bread Show on Wednesday.

Mrs Reeves said this year's King of the Bakers title was highly contested with entrants from all over Queensland including Brisbane, Hervey Bay and Tweed Heads.

"So much pride, care and thought goes into each and every one of our products and we are thrilled that our local community enjoys our range and feels we are deserving of such titles," she said the day after the bakery's top win.

"It can be hard competing against the big supermarkets with their ability to price-cut, but the proof is in the pudding and our products speak for themselves with results like this."

Born and Bread has enjoyed a reputation for producing only the best breads and baked goods since the store's opening eight years ago.

The bakery has branched out and now has stores at the Toowoomba Plaza, Bridge Street Plaza, Mort Estate Shopping Village and at the corner of Greenwattle St and Glenvale Rd.

This year's King of the Bakers competition at the 2012 Toowoomba Bread Show (the first event for the Toowoomba Show) attracted more than 600 entries from more than 50 bakeries across the state.

All winners were officially announced on Wednesday night at an awards ceremony after the judging was completed.

Royal Agricultural Society of Queensland chief executive officer Damon Phillips said all of the bread from the competition had been thrown out.

"Some people chose to give it to the animals, but it's been out since Tuesday and it's been handled and sniffed by all the judges," he said.
