You know when you hear about an idea and you wish you had thought of it… well that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about Allergy Riders.
Allergy Riders is a fun and simple food labelling systems for those with dairy, gluten, egg and nut allergies as well as those who choose to eat vegan. The range consists of cupcake baking cups and food flags.

Want to know why gluten free bread just doesn’t taste the same as the glutenous kinds? The ladies from Bready give us an insight….
