Two Brothers Foods extends gluten-free range
A Cornish food wholesaler has extended its gluten-free range due to an increase in consumer demand.
Two Brothers Foods, based near Newquay in Cornwall, has expanded its range to include gluten-free burgers, made in-house from locally sourced meat. After being successfully trialled last year, they have become a permanent fixture on the range.
“We wanted to make a really great tasting and locally-sourced product for this growing market,” said managing director Gavin Roberts. “We introduced our gluten free burgers quietly at first to test demand, and were overwhelmed with the response; we are anticipating even higher demand in 2016.”
Other gluten-free products available in the range are The Kernow Sausage Company’s Herby Pork Sausages which are described as being an adaptation of the classic Cumberland sausage.
The Kernow Sausage Company was the first business created by Roberts, producing bacon and other pork cuts as well as sausages; it now forms an integral part of Two Brothers Foods.
The company predicts that its range of specialist meat products will be a popular choice for consumers in 2016. Among the selection include its Slim and Proper Lower Fat Sausages - which reportedly contains 65% less fat than the traditional sausage – gluten-free pies from Cornish producer Grumpies and Steak & Ale Homity Pies.
“We are constantly adapting and evolving our range in order to help chefs exceed the expectations of their customers,” continued Roberts. “As more and more people cut out or reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, there is a growing demand for a wider variety of suitable products from the restaurants, B&Bs, hotels, pubs and cafes we work with.
“We are especially pleased to be able to offer these locally sourced options, some of which are made in-house and others which are provided by suppliers of our Cornish Table range.”
