The market for Gluten Free products is growing.

An estimated 45,000Irish people are now coeliac: meaning they must avoid
wheat in the diet.
Symptoms of gluten intolerance include fatigue, and weight loss.

To cater for the increasing market many companies have been
introducing gluten free foods.

Today in County Cork: Scally’s SuperValu in Clonakilty opened a Irelands
first in-store gluten free bakery.
and separately in Cork City a company which produces gluten free snacks is
reporting increasing sales.

Veronicas Snacks is based on College Road and makes gluten free crisps.

Founder Veronica Kenealley says the market for coeliac friendly food is
increasing rapidly which is creating opportunities for Cork companies
