The Tala Promise: Tala for Outstanding Quality

Tala’s promise is to create and develop products that are outstanding quality. A Tala product is a product that you can potentially invest in for a lifetime and perhaps even longer. We love reading letters from lifelong customers and their children who still own Tala baking and cake decorating products that have been passed down through generations of their family, to carry on the tradition of making delicious and nutritious homemade food.

Our baking and cake decorating supplies are manufactured to very high standards; for example our Performance Non Stick Bakeware comes with a minimum 10 year guarantee. With the best non-stick dual coating available on the market, every product is made to the highest specification for superior performance. Manufactured using commercial weight steel, you can use each piece with metal utensils, bringing the joy back to homemade baking and roasting.

Furthermore, in the spirit of our commitment to UK manufacturing, our quality will not be beaten when it comes to our UK made Kitchenware products, such as our beautiful British Enamelled Steel Bakeware, which is pressed in Oldham and sent to Bingley to be enamelled. Smooth to the touch, weighty and yet manageable to carry when full of tasty homemade food, our trademark blue and cream enamelware is absolutely a kitchen essential. Tala endeavours to manufacture as many products in the UK as possible, because a Tala product made in Britain is a sign of quality assurance. 


Product Souring and Manufacturing

Here at Tala, we are proud of our ethical and responsible approach to product sourcing, manufacturing and product testing. We can deliver in bulk, shelf-ready or clip stripped. Uniquely, we retain a UK packing facility, allowing us the flexibility to bespoke package one or one million pieces.
