Goodness Grains Gluten Free Bakery, based in Longford Town, has won the Bronze Award in the diverse and competitive Dietary Specific Category at the Blas Irish Food Awards which were virtually announced from Dingle on Saturday 3rd October 2020.
The company picked up the Bronze Medal for its Gluten Free Vegan Bagel. The company also won the Blas “Best in Longford” award.
8 years on from initial production commencing back in 2103, the Goodness Grains brand continues to grow across both retail and foodservice sectors in Ireland with emerging business opportunities in the UK and Europe.
Goodness Grains’ 20,000 sq ft bakery is a purpose built, dedicated Gluten Free facility, one of the largest gluten free bakeries in Ireland and UK. The new facility has on site blast freezing capabilities and as part of its current expansion phase, has implemented a full traceability system.
Goodness Grains commitment to sustainable production is enforced by its verified membership of Bord Bia’s Origin Green Sustainability Programme.
“Though 2020/21 has been a difficult time for many SME’s, Goodness Grains has utilised the past 18 months to focus in on its key NPD projects, working with new and existing customers on both branded and own label product development”… says Geraldine O’Shea of Goodness Grains. The Gluten Free Vegan Bagel is one such new product which the company brought to market in late 2020.
The company is set to launch its new updated website by 31st October, with specific focus on its subscription service for customers throughout Ireland and UK.
