A second independent ­bakery has collapsed in as many months.

Buxton Spa Bakery, which supplied bread and cakes to supermarkets, ­retailers and foodservice, went into administration last week. It is the latest supplier in the sector to go under, following the collapse of Fords Bakery last month, which was acquired by McGhee Group.

"It's getting harder to survive, especially as independent cake manufacturers," said one wholesaler. "This will affect availability in the discount area, especially the traditional market men and stallholders."
