New Rye Bread Brings Flavour to Families and Foodies

Dempster's Launches Five New Rye Bread Varieties

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2010) -

Attention to Food and Lifestyle Editors

Today Dempster's, Canada's leading fresh bread baker, launched a new line of European-style rye breads featuring five innovative varieties to suit everyone's taste preferences – from foodies to families. The new rye breads are soft and moist so they don't fall apart like traditional rye breads and are packaged in a smaller, convenient loaf size to minimize waste.

"Dempster's is modernizing traditional rye bread by launching five delicious rye varieties. Fans of rye bread will have more flavour choices and newcomers will be introduced to tasty, versatile breads ideal for sandwiches and as an ingredient in recipes," said Chef John Placko, Director of Culinary Excellence, Maple Leaf Foods. "I've developed signature rye recipes for each variety, including a delicious turkey sandwich, a savoury berry stuffing and smoked trout and caraway canapés."

Dempster's Rye Bread is available in five rye varieties: Mild Light, Fruit & Berry, Golden Grains, Country Caraway and Harvest Pumpernickel. The breads are low in fat, a source of fibre and a source of eight essential nutrients. 

Every loaf is freshly baked using the finest ingredients for an authentic deli taste and comes with a Taste Guarantee to ensure freshness and great flavour. Dempster's new line of rye bread is available at major grocery stores across Ontario in the deli aisle (where one exists). The suggested retail price is $2.99. For more information on Dempster's rye bread and Chef Placko's tasty new recipes, please visit
