Frozen bread cannot be considered fresh, trading standards officers said. They are to issue new guidelines next month on the way supermarkets must describe their bread baked in-store.

The Local Authority Co-ordinating Body on Trading Standards is worried that consumers could be misled into thinking that all such loaves "fresh- baked", "oven-fresh", "freshly baked here today"are prepared from beginning to end on the premises.

An officials suggested some supermarkets were misleading their customers.
