Baking Industry Welcomes New Gluten-free Association
The UK market for gluten-free products has grown rapidly, with annual free-from sales currently worth GBP585.6m, a 26.7% increase on the previous year. Sales are projected to reach GBP673m by 2020. Within the free-from market, the gluten-free market accounts for nearly 60% of the category and increased by 36% in 2015.
The newly-formed Gluten-Free Industry Association (GFIA) aims to support companies involved in the manufacture and trade of gluten-free products, in response to the significant growth of the market for gluten-free products. The association is UK-based and headquartered in the new FDF offices in central London. The GFIA is a full member Association of the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), which will provide the secretariat for the association.
The association will have a page on the FDF website at a later date. Meanwhile, updates on GFIA can be read by clicking here.
