The growing demand for a gluten free offering is undeniable. Businesses of all sizes are now adding a few gluten free alternatives to their menus. St Kilda café Kotch Lane owner, Sanjay Premkumar, introduced gluten free into his three years ago.
‘Introducing gluten free into our café was easier than expected. We added gluten free products to the menu because of the high customer demand. It means we are more approachable and versatile as a business and for people with specific dietary requirements that’s an important factor, and it reinforces the overall welcoming nature of our café. To avoid cross contamination, we wash and sterilise all equipment before use, we store the gluten free products separately and we schedule gluten free production separately. We bake all our own gluten free bread, and on baking days we sell whole loaves to our regulars, which increases our turnover.
Using Well and Good products means we are working with professional foodservice ingredients, the flours and recipes are tried and tested and technical advice is there if you need it. The service and support from the team is second to none. The flours are functional and easy to use in any recipe.’
