Scottish Bakers member Calvin's Free From Foods’ knew they were onto a winner with their Original Coconut Bread recipe which is allergen-free, as well as naturally gluten free and vegan but they could not have dared to imagine that a host of independent expert judges would agree! Calvin's Original Coconut Bread has made the cut in two prestigious awards schemes; shortlisted in the New Product of the Year category in the Food Matters Live Awards 2020 which celebrates the innovation, creativity and resilience of the food, drink and nutrition industry in what has been an exceptional year. The bread has also taken a Highly Commended in the Gluten Free category in Britain's Best Loaf competition which is organised by British Baker magazine. The flat bread rolls have been applauded for being a perfect and versatile alternative to bread; they can be used for breakfast, toasties, and burgers. They are made with coconut flour and coconut oil which give it a mild coconut taste. CEO and Founder Sabine Klaus-Carter said “Calvin's Free From Foods and its Original Coconut Bread were inspired by our son Calvin who was born with multiple food allergies. We embarked on a journey making great Free From Food products, our first product to market is our Original Coconut Flatbread which is naturally 14 allergens free, gluten-free, grain-free, plant-based, paleo and vegan. The bread is made with organic coconut flour that is sustainably and ethically sourced to achieve the ultimate feel-good factor on every level."
“But to be receiving such plaudits at this stage in our journey is just amazing! I still cannot believe that in less than a week of being shortlisted at Food Matters Live, our humble Coconut Flat Bread Rolls received Highly Commended for Gluten Free category at Britain's Best Loaf Competition by British Baker Magazine. I hope this is a real sign of things to come for our business.”
