The bakery i Chiang Rai
Here we bake cookies and bread according to the Scandinavian ways
Right by the central bus station in Chiang Rai you will find our bakery. We are making all kinds of cookies and bread, all according to the Scandinavian way of baking. Our bakery is well visited, both by locals and visitors. Today you will also be able to enjoy a delicious Thai lunch in a peaceful environment.
At the end of the 1990's we started baking cinnamon rolls to sell by the side of the big road. It turned out this wasn't the best business idea. Dreams started to form of opening up a coffee shop in town. In the year of 2001 one of our girls received an opportunity of going through a confectioner training at "Peder Skrivares" confectioner school in Varberg, Sweden. A year later we were able to rent a venue in the heart of Chiang Rai. The year 2005 we expanded from offering Scandinavian pastries to also serving food, and we were able to buy a twice as big of a venue right next door.
Today we have a full staff at BaanChivitMai Bakery; a chef, bakers and servers. During the school breaks the older children have the opportunity to come work to make some extra money.
BaanChivitMai Bakery also serves as an information center for all of BaanChivitMai. Customers can read all about our different projects. All profit goes back into the foundation to save children out of their vulnerable circumstances to give them a fair, safe future.
A few popular pastries are the cinnamon rolls, the "vacuums", the chocolate balls and our Scandinavian style cakes. Many come here to grab a latte and a pastry. Lately people also discovered the delicious Thai food, and also our Swedish meatballs with lingonberry jam.
