Goodness Grains is a family owned and run company set up in 2013 to bring quality Gluten Free Bakery products to the Coeliac Consumer and increasingly the mainstream markets in Ireland, UK and Europe.
In 2010, noticing the growing requests for gluten free products in the family restaurant, we decided to introduce a gluten free option into our menus. However at that time, we found it difficult to source quality Gluten Free products from the market so we began to develop our own Gluten Free bakery products in-house. Over a period of 24 months and with the help of our customers through continuous tastings, focus groups and surveys we developed the Goodness Grains product range and launched the brand at Catex 2013.
8 years on from initial production, Goodness Grains operates from a new 20,000 sq ft bakery. This purpose built, dedicated Gluten Free facility is 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.
Our product range comprises Gluten Free Breads (loaves, bagels, 2 pack slices), Muffins and Baked Goods (cakes, scones, tartlets), Viennoiserie and Seasonal lines. All of our bread products are also suitable for VEGANS.
Products are certified to < 5ppm Gluten.
Customer profile is split 51% Retail and 49% Foodservice with 8% of total volume attributing to Own Label products, currently exporting to UK and Europe.
The company employs 28 people.
Goodness Grains commitment to sustainable production is enforced by its verified membership of Bord Bia’s Origin Green Sustainability Programme.
In 2019, the company achieved a BRC AA Grade certification. BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification programme. The Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
We have won a total of 30 Quality Food Awards since we began production in February 2013.
