The full range of Macphie UHT products is gluten-free and available in our new, redesigned tetra packaging. The range of over 20 products includes favourites such as Crème Brule, Béchamel and Hollandaise.
Keri Cummings, Category Marketing Executive at Macphie, said: “We’re continually striving to improve and enhance our product range at Macphie. The gluten-free market is growing and it’s important for Macphie to provide the option of these products for our customers”.
According to Datamonitor, the UK gluten-free market has increased by 229% in sales in the last decade. Interest in gluten-free products, especially in the last few years, has seen a big rise in companies developing gluten-free products. Mintel predicts that sales of free from foods will grow by 46% over the next four years (to £561m).
Consumers of the gluten-free market are not just those with Coeliac disease. Many reports discuss ‘lifestylers’, who are people cutting gluten out of their diet to feel healthier. This trend has encouraged growth in this sector but it is believed that these people may leave the market in the future when another diet trend comes to the fore.
