Gluten Free Now Mainstream

Eating something different to everyone else at the table is a frequent reality to those with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease.  Gluten free foods have come a long way and the category is shaking off previous perceptions of dry and inferior taste. With more and more schools and indeed counties turning their menu’s entirely gluten free, these products are a great addition to any menu.

Their MSC Gluten Free Fish Range was primarily created to meet school standards and has already proven successful and well established, being particularly popular in Primary Schools. The 60g portions are a perfect size for children added 4-10 and are ready after 20 minutes baking in the oven.

Trisha Rasor, Marketing Director at Crown Foods says “We hope to stepchange perceptions and expectations on the quality of gluten free products. Many of our customers love the range so much that they offer as part of main menus. Meaning whether you have gluten intolerance or not, it is the centre of plate fish dish of choice. It’s such an inclusive product.”

Following the successful launch, this product is widely available through Charles Sanders, Brakes, Bidfood, Holdsworth, Hopwells and Thomas Ridley.
