Tasty Baking Company

Modern Manufacturing of a Philadelphia Tradition

When Tasty Baking Company, a Philadelphia favorite since 1914, needed to modernize its manufacturing and distribution facility, The Navy Yard was selected because of its location, size, and existing infrastructure. Together with Liberty Property Trust and Synterra Partners, Tasty Baking developed one of the world’s largest LEED®-certified bakeries. Paul Ridder, President of Tasty Baking, states, “The Navy Yard site is ideal; with access to a large and talented workforce and unprecedented connectivity to the highway system, we are able to get our products out faster, fresher, and farther than ever.” Tasty Baking, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Flowers Foods, Inc., continues to thrive and prepare for its second century with a sweet and sustainable future at The Navy Yard.
