From The Beginning

The company was founded in 2004 by David Cooper and his wife, Robin Callahan. Working out of their home kitchen they peddled their line of all natural, flavourful scones to small bakeries in Fairfield County, CT. The company now manufactures their line of British baked goods from a new state of the art commercial commissary in Danbury, CT. While scones remain the backbone of the business the Dere Street product line has expanded to include many other British pastries and desserts that include, Shortbread, Dessert Pudding Cakes, Tarts, Irish Soda Bread and Loaf Cakes. New and unique products include their first Italian product the "Cannoli Creamwich" and "Scookies". They also manufacture American style Muffins and Cookies.

The company's line of products is sold to food service customers and retailers throughout the USA. Dere Street's blueprint for success is taken from the Romans 2000 years ago as they undertook the building of DERE STREET...hard work, an untamable spirit, quality and pride will produce a product that will withstand the passage of time.

Sadly, David's wife, Robin passed away in 2014 after a hard-fought battle with ovarian cancer. In Robin's name David continues the family dream of making Dere Street a success.

Signature-David and Robin

Making certain every bite is a memorable one.

Who We are

The story of Dere Street is savory and sweet. In 1999 while spending a two-week holiday in Cornwall, England, David Cooper, his wife Robin and their three children got to experience the richness of life in the English countryside while enjoying the comfort foods of David’s native England. Call it a mid-life crisis or perhaps fate, those two weeks would change the Cooper’s future. David had been looking for a new direction and had found it, turning his passion for food and baking into a great family business.
