Dave's Killer Bread is an American company based in Milwaukie, Oregon, which makes organic whole-grain breads. It was founded in 2005 by Dave Dahl, who learned the baking trade growing up in his family bakery.
The history of Dave's Killer Bread began in 2005, when co-founder Dave Dahl was welcomed back to the family bakery by his older brother Glenn after serving 15 years in prison. Dave seized the opportunity and worked tirelessly to develop a killer new recipe for organic and Non-GMO bread, which was debuted at the Portland Farmers Market in 2005. Dave’s Killer Bread was an instant hit.
What began as one man’s journey has turned into so much more. Today, Dave’s Killer Bread is the #1 organic bread in America, with distribution in all 50 states as well as Canada. Additionally, approximately 1 in 3 of the more than 300 employee-partners at the company’s Milwaukie, Oregon bakery has a criminal background. These individuals demonstrate the commitment, the passion and the power to learn and grow, becoming some of the company’s most valued and trusted workers, filling positions from entry level jobs to management positions responsible for hundreds of employees and critical bakery operations.
Dave’s Killer Bread is made from organic wheat grown in the great state of Montana where the short growing season gives it an added protein boost. The DKB team is often on the ground, working with 90% of Montana's organic wheat farms. They also foster sustainable agricultural practices and organic farming through seed tests, apprentice programs, farm sponsorships and conferences.
