Coveted ingredients. Classic recipes. Crafted with care. These are the hallmarks of the Old World Moravian baking tradition, a celebration of pure and cherished flavors. Since 1930, Salem Baking Company has proudly carried on this tradition, because we believe using only the finest, and essential, ingredients is still the best way to convey the naturally vivid flavors in everything we bake.
We began as a retail bakery in Winston-Salem, NC operating continuously since 1930 as Dewey's Bakery. In 1992, we created Salem Baking Company to focus on traditional baked products for national distribution. We named our new company after the Moravian settlement of Salem located in our community, which was established in 1766, and was the source of the recipe for our first product - Moravian Cookies.
We have since introduced an array of new products, each with a story that spans generations and cultures. Our product lines include Moravian Cookies, Delightfully Thin & Crispy Cookies, Cheese Straws, Cheese Biscuits, Flatbread Crackers, and Shortbread Cookies. We are faithful to the origins of these time-honored classics. We bake in the homemade tradition and use the finest, premium ingredients. Because these products have withstood the test of time, they have become a part of our lives and the lives of many generations. They have a familiarity that transcends taste and time. They are tastes so vivid and distinctive, they have an almost metaphysical power to bring you fully into the present moment or transport you back in time to a warm and happy memory.
