Middleton Foods has opened a new gluten free factory making it safer and easier for fish and chip shops to cater for this growing market.
Middleton Foods has opened a new 5,000 square feet stand-alone gluten free factory at its site in Willenhall, West Midlands. Dedicated specifically to manufacturing gluten free products, the building took six months to complete and can produce over 100 tonnes of naturally gluten free batter, curry and gravy mixes as well as a range of seasonings and bakery products per week. With the gluten free market growing significantly, Middleton Foods was eager to create an environment in which all wheat products were removed, giving full control over manufacturing and eliminating the risk of
cross-contamination completely. Middleton’s currently offer its Gluten Free Batter mix, which is now available in a larger 16kg bag. Made using Doves Farm gluten free flour, the batter mix is endorsed by the Coeliac Society and carries the internationally recognisable crossed grain symbol identifying gluten free products.
For the fish frier, this development not only means additional peace of mind that the products they are buying are 100% gluten free, but it also creates a wider range of products to choose from, both now and in the future, as new ideas are developed and helps to bring the cost of gluten free ingredients down. Ryan Baker, Sales Manager, Middleton Foods, comments: “ As a company we are committed to developing a whole range of gluten free products. We now have a new, fully operational, stand-alone gluten free factory that will produce a range of products for the fish and chip trade, bakery, catering and butchery markets. We are at the live trial stage for our new gluten free curry and gravy products, so very soon we will have a full compliment of gluten free products to offer our customers.”
