Special Diets

We specialise in providing for special diets – gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and vegan and have a huge range of products suitable for all (see also our Raw and Superfoods’ page).  Being on a limited diet whether in the short or long term can feel very restrictive.  Substitutes for what we miss can feel like second best options leaving us feeling deprived.  We strive to hunt down the very best alternatives for you:
