Our Story

 

History

Beginning as a one-man show back in 1984, the Alpine Bakery has developed into an organic bakery, café, and grocery.

In 1995, the Bakery moved from 4th Avenue to its current location at 411 Alexander St., in the landmark log building in Whitehorse’s downtown.

At the end of 2016, after 32 years, the founder and owner Suat Tutzlak retired, and Silvia + Walter, from Germany took over the Bakery.

 

 

 Hello, we are the new owners

of the Alpine Bakery!

We are excited to have moved from Germany to the Yukon. We love the openness of the land, the respect for nature and sustainability, and the healthy pace of living.

We look forward to following Suat’s tradition of serving you tasty, wholesome and sustainable offerings.

We now offer a wider variety of German style breads, buns, pretzels, and cakes.

Our vision

Alpine Bakery’s vision goes beyond daily bread to working more mindfully towards making changes in our communities. Its mission is to offer wholesome food products, 100% organic with an emphasis on vegan products, in order to promote healthy and sustainable alternative lifestyle choices and foster positive change.

 

  What does it mean?

Our policy is “not just talk, do it”.  Alpine Bakery is now a member of 1% FTP—we will donate at least 1% of sales to support environmental causes.  1% FTP is a world-wide alliance of businesses of any kind who annually donate 1% of revenues to NGOs acting on environmental purposes.  The NGOs can be chosen independently by each member.
