Red Tractor-certified baker Speciality Breads has announced that its two bakeries and eclectic portfolio are now 100% nut free as of the 1st January 2019.
In order to be compliant, the company has delisted two lines from its artisan portfolio and both bakeries have undergone a rigorous process and restructuring.
Managing Director Simon Cannell comments:
“At the beginning of last year we saw an increase in the number of customers requesting ‘nut free’ breads. As we only had a couple breads containing nuts, we made the decision for both our bakeries to become completely nut free. Allergens are a concern for every catering establishment so we wanted to make sure that our customers have complete peace of mind and we can provide chefs and consumers with a clear guarantee and assurance.”
The move follows the company’s recent vegan launch, which saw the roll out of 60 breads that have been registered by The Vegan Society as the trend for plant-based eating continues.
