THE RISK YOUR “FREE-FROM” FOOD BRAND CANNOT AFFORD TO TAKE
Companies are wise to recognize the attractions of the fast-growing “free from” consumer market segment. People with food allergies and sensitivities are loyal, resulting in high-customer lifetime value and willingness to accept higher prices for foods that they know are safe. What’s more, many alternative, gluten-free grains come from hardy, drought-resistant crops. Baking ingredients like millets, teff, quinoa, and amaranth also can help diversify supply chains alongside more traditional crops whose supplies are vulnerable to geopolitical risk. Yet too many companies make grave mistakes that could be avoided but permanently cost companies prospective consumers for life. Systemic barriers in the food value chain make it harder than it should be to provide allergy-safe foods and hospitality experiences. These obstacles are begging for solutions: in other words, business opportunities.
Hear first-hand from someone who lives with celiac disease how to avoid sometimes comically bad unforced errors and remove barriers to the lucrative “free-from” market while diversifying your ingredient sources.
