Rhys Harvey

Growing up in a small town, Rhys says he had a choice between working on an onion farm or at the local New World. After a few months on the onion farm it was off to New World to stack shelves, but the instore baker nabbed him instead and after being offered an apprenticeship at Bakers Delight in Pukekohe he never looked back. He qualified in 2012 with a Level 3 and in 2018 with his Level 4.  He’s worked at Bread and Butter and Best Ugly Bagels as head baker, and done a stint tutoring, but an offer from a friend opening a new bakery was too good to turn down and he’s now head baker at Daily Bread in Auckland with an apprentice under his wing.
