    Sorry to hear that you're finding it difficult to get our bread. Have you tried on Ocado?
    I am afraid that we cannot reduce the postage for our online deliveries. We want our customers to enjoy our bread as fresh as possible, so we use a courier who picks the bread from the bakery as soon as it is baked and delivers it the day after. This unfortunately is a slightly more expensive route but it does ensure the bread is as fresh as possible.

    They have it in our Waitrose but it seems it is only in selected stores where they think it will sell. I don't buy it myself I prefer the HiLo bread from Sainsburys

    Thanks Annie! :) I have looked in our local Sainsbury's and a few others and never managed to find any. I've just googled a list of where to buy....and our local store is on the list now. So I shall try again:)

    I had a job to find it this week it has always been on the top shelf with the small loaves before so thought they had run out then I spotted it right down on the bottom shelf. It is really expensive for the size of the slices it was1.70 I usually get it with other stuff so don't often check the price but I am sure it has gone up in price to what it was

    I've never used Ocado so just looked on their website, did a search for 'low carb' and it came up with loads of stuff! So who/what is this Ocado? I might have to try using them in future :)

    I don't think any one food item is necessary, but a varied, healthy diet, hopefully with the foods we like, is highly desirable, and for a lot of people that includes bread. Nothing wrong with that if they can tolerate it.

    Ocado deliver for Waitrose and Morrisons in answer to the question of who are they.

    Maybe they deliver under their own name too Rowan? AFAIK they represent Waitrose and Morrisons in the delivery stakes though.

    Hi Folks
    You can buy LivLife low carb bread directly from www.livlifefoods.co.uk It costs £6.36 for a case of 4 loafs, which works out at £1.59 per loaf. Delivery is express only, but at £5.22 is expensive. Guess it could be worth the extra pennies for delivery if you want to get this bread and you factori in the cost of your time & travel expense to find a local stockist.
    Ali. :)

    Oh, that's good news @Simon84. I've got a local Waitrose which hopefully will stock it too. Can you remind me how many carb grams are there per slice?
