About Us

The Path:

Going from fashion industry to bakery is not exactly what one would call a predictable career path…
It all began many years ago, when, as a child, I began to see the craft of baking as both a way to create and to communicate. For me, it was (and is) a way to give shape and life to my emotions, using only raw material and my hands. Thus, at age eighteen, I decided to trade in my white collar and patent leather shoes for a new life as a baker, using as a guideline my desire to restore the craft to its traditional roots, born of a time when all products were exceptional. In other words, I did not want to be just another baker. Rather I wanted to be thebaker. To give my dream a realistic profile, I went to London in 1985 and become an apprentice to one of the local bakery and spent two years there.
Indeed, after long struggle, I was considered as one of best bakers in Gujranwala.

The Bakery:

Meer Bakers & Sweets is one the oldest and probably best bakery in Gujranwala. Founded in the heart of Gujranwala in 1987, it has through second generations delivered joy and quality to its visitors. It has a lot to offer, including good taste, traditions, history, as well as quick and qualified service. 

You can choose to enjoy the confections on location or bring the cakes home with you for coffee. Alternatively, we can deliver to your door. We hope that after seeing what we have to offer you will feel like visiting our confectionary, tasting our products, and making use of our many services. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Meer Bakers & Sweets.

Mission Statement:

Having chosen this line of work out of passion, I strongly work at promoting it time-honored traditions, which, unfortunately, are all too quickly disappearing. There is no compromise in my work, only quality.

I aim to show that this profession is amongst the most beautiful in the world, allowing for those who have mastered its secrets to give a simple yet intense happiness with something as simple as a piece of bread. Actually, it’s all been said by a baker before, in Marcel Pagnol`s book La Femme du Boulanger:
“I am going to make you bread like you have never seen before, and in this bread there will be love and friendship”.
