Belem Bakery has built its reputation on quality and service. Originally established in 1989 as Moreland
Bakery with nearly 20 years experience in the wholesale bakery business has made Belem Bakery the
premier wholesale Portuguese bakery in Melbourne.
The family business was created in 1989 when Alex and Linda Lopes opened the Moreland Bakery in
Brunswick. In 1997 the moved to Toorak Road Burwood where they started the retail and wholesale
business, The Magical Munch Bar. With their son Alex Jr. and daughter Andrea they established a
highly successful business with much praise including a piece in the respected Melbourne Age
Epicure magazine for their outstanding authentic Portuguese pastries. After 10 years of successful
and wholesale trading at the Magical Munch Bar the family decided to concentrate on creating a
fully fledged Portuguese wholesale bakery.
Now under the leadership of daughter Andrea and son Alex Jr. the tradition now continues into
its third generation.
Presently located in Mill Park the Lopes family has invested heavily in the premises and equipment
to continue to provide the highest quality product tot the customer.
