article You probably haven’t heard the name Joe DeAngelo.
The father of the world’s best-selling bread brand, Joe’s, was born in Australia in 1960.
Since then, he’s been responsible for some of the most iconic breads on earth.
His creations have become synonymous with Australia’s national bread, while the word “bread” is synonymous with his brand.
A true legend Joe is also one of Australia’s most prolific bread makers, with a career spanning more than 30 years.
Joe Deangelo has sold more than 200 million breads and over 500 million rolls of bread since opening his first shop in 1966, according to the company’s website.
The bread giant started with a small batch of rolls in the late 1940s, then expanded the business to include a variety of breads over the next 50 years.
Since the early 1990s, Joe has produced more than 7 billion breads, according a spokesperson.
Joe’s Bread is one of the country’s most iconic brands.

The Australian dollar has jumped from US$1.20 to US$2.60 in the past year alone, and the Australian dollar index has risen nearly 200 per cent since 2014.
It’s not just bread that has gained in popularity in Australia, either.
The country’s breads have also gained in quality.
A recent survey by Foodstuffs found the country was ranked number one in the world for its quality of its breads.
The study also found Australians are keen to know how the bread they buy is made.
In 2014, the country also topped the list for its highest quality of bread.
“There are so many different breads out there, they all taste different and you can taste the difference between different varieties of bread,” said Jenny Brown, chief executive of the Australian Bread and Bread Co-operative, the Australian union for bread manufacturers.
But what about the price?
The price of a loaf of Joe’s bread can be as high as $80 or as low as $30 depending on the region of the nation.
Many Australian consumers have also become accustomed to eating their bread with a fork and knife.
But a recent study conducted by the Australia Institute found Australians eat a higher percentage of bread with fork and a knife than their European counterparts.
Australia is also a growing bread market.
According to the Australian Industry Group, Australian bread sales rose to a record $2.6 billion in 2015.
The group’s annual report found the Australian bread market was set to reach $10 billion in 2020.
At its peak, the industry had around 60,000 employees in Australia.
But by 2025, the number of employees in the industry was expected to decline by 25 per cent, the report said.
“Australia is not just the bread bread nation but also the food and drink nation, with bread and drink sales rising by nearly 2 per cent per year from 2014 to 2020,” the report noted.
According to the report, Australia’s overall bread industry has been hit by the economic downturn.
In addition to the price of bread, the company also has a wide range of other goods and services.
The company provides a range of financial services, including debt service, insurance and insurance brokerage.
Like many Australian businesses, Joe De Angelo has also diversified into a range and technology sectors.
He’s invested in food processing, logistics and delivery.
However, Joe de Angelo is still a traditional bread maker.
The bread company is known for its handmade breads that have become a signature in the Australian market.

You can always expect to see Joe’s in your local supermarket or grocery store.
Breads are a staple in many parts of the city, particularly in inner-city areas.
The dough has been baked by the same family for over 100 years.
While it’s not uncommon to see breads made in a factory, Joe is renowned for his artisan breads — like the ones he produces at his family-run business.
He started his business in 1966 when he had just turned 25.
Now Joe is one half of the iconic DeAngelo family, which includes his two sons and his daughter, Heather.
