Captain John Derst's

In July 1867, Captain John Derst opened a small bakery on Broughton Street opposite the Marshall House in Savannah, Ga. Today, 140 years later, Derst Baking Company is still baking up fresh Captain John Derst's Old Fashioned Bread as well as other baked goods in its modern bakery on Mills B Lane Blvd. in Savannah.

You can find Captain John Derst's delicious breads in select markets in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Look for Captain John's distinctive brown packaging. You'll find something great-tasting inside!

Derst Baking Company is a subsidiary of Flowers Foods Bakeries Group.

The original recipe for Captain John's bread, which is in his own handwriting, is in safe keeping.

Flowers Foods would like you to know that it is adding the following allergen advisory statement—manufactured on shared equipment that also processes products containing tree nuts and peanuts—to the packaging of snack cakes and pastries that are made at a bakery that is now producing items containing peanut butter. These products are sold under the following Flowers brands: Blue Bird, Broad Street Bakery, Derst, Mountain Farms, Mrs. Freshley's, and Our Special Touch. This is a voluntary advisory statement and packaging with the updated statement will begin appearing on store shelves in late September 2012.
