Sweet Offerings For Vegans And Those Following Gluten-free And Dairy-free Diets

Sweet offerings for vegans and those following gluten-free and dairy-free diets

  • News

Southover Foods is upping its Food Service offering of gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan sweet treats. The Brighton-based company is keen to ensure they have products to offer their customers that suit all dietary requirements.

Research suggests that in 2018 sales of meat-free foods were forecast to reach £598m with more than 3.5 million Britons switching to a plant-based diet. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free – ‘Snacks and deserts’ was the most significant subcategory on Google UK, interest in this group is one of the most popular categories based on search volume alone.

Southover Foods has formed a partnership with Yorkshire-based ProperMaid, a unique and innovative brand passionate about baking original hand made cakes with a twist.

ProperMaid, a Great Taste Award winner, believes the key to their success is their passion for ‘proper’ ingredients – the majority sourced from Yorkshire, ‘proper’ artisan production methods (with no artificial ingredients or preservatives) and innovative and unusual cake flavours.

Southover Foods will stock ProperMaid’s ‘Made without’ range – a range that the cake makers say “They might be ‘made without’ but rest assured they still retain all the taste and uniqueness of our other award-winning cakes”.
