A bread tradition through generations

A bread tradition through generations

An insight into the history of steam baguettes

Take part of our commercial for Ångbagarn recorded in 1992. In the movie Hans & Greta (Stellan Sundahl & Lotta Thorell) visit Ångbagarn in Trelleborg. Other participants are Thore Skogman, Martin Ljung, Ingemar Johansson and Povel Ramel.

Over the past 100 years, Ångbagarn has grown from a small bakery to a hearty part of the community. Despite various setbacks such as the sudden loss of Ingemar in the 90s, our dedication to the art of bread has remained unchanged. 

After Ingemar's death, the difficult decision to sell the bakery was made in 1997, but the love of bread has never waned. Now, 25 years later, the Nilsson family is back at the helm ready to continue the family's bread journey.

At Ångbagarn in Trelleborg we continue to bake with the same love and care as always. For us, bread is not just food, it is part of our history, our identity and our community.

Three generations of the art of bread

In the early 1900s, the foundations for a long tradition of bread baking were laid at Ångbagarn in Trelleborg. The story goes back three generations to Tage Nilsson, whose passion for bread and baking paved the way for what would become a long and successful history. It was here, at Ångbagarn, that he began his career and it was here that he built the foundation for the Nilsson family's involvement in the industry.

After years of hard work and dedication, the next generation, siblings Ingemar and Lennart Nilsson, took over the business in 1968. Under their leadership, Ångbagarn grew further and in 1978 the premises were built where the bakery still stands today.
