New Gluten-Free Association Established
There has been a rapid increase in the amount of gluten-free food produced by food manufacturers, which is fantastic to see. Sales of gluten-free food in the UK is currently at £585.6m and is set to rise to £673m by 2020.
In a response to this significant growth, a new Gluten-Free Industry Association (GFIA) has been established to support the companies involved in the manufacture and trade of gluten-free products.
We think this is a great move, particularly as the GFIA will ensure that manufacturers meet consistent high standards and fill consumers with more confidence when they purchase gluten-free good.
Currently, GFIA members include:
- BFree Foods
- Nairns Oatcakes
- Bells of Lazonby
- Northumbrian Fine Foods
- Genius Foods
- Delicious Alchemy
- Mrs Crimbles
