Co-founder Diana: “I have been struggling with dairy intolerance and gluten sensitivity for over a decade. Eating anything with the smallest amount of gluten brings on a range of severe and often painful symptoms.”
Seven years ago there was no free from section in the supermarkets, so we had a huge challenge to find and learn how to make things I could safely eat.
After launching our Facebook page we realised that there were thousands of people going through the same challenges as me. Many people became overwhelmed and had no idea where to start and how to implement a gluten free lifestyle.
So we set out to create an interactive online platform where the whole of the gluten free community could come together to share their ideas, tips and support each other with their own experience.
We are passionate about raising awareness to coeliac disease and the importance of diagnosis. Last year we raised over £1,000 for national charity Coeliac UK to help raise awareness to the condition.
We are so proud of what we have achieved so far!
The site has been recognised by one of the UK’s most high profile businessmen, former BBC Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis. The Gluten Free Centre was also a finalist at the Mumpreneur UK Awards in the “Pillar” category for providing outstanding support.
In addition, Diana was chosen to be one of the UK’s top 100 business mums in 2015 by the organisation. Our website also holds a Mumpreneur UK Bronze website badge.
