Hot off the Press Newburn Bakehouse news
If you received a post that looked like this last night, please ignore it, this is the updated version
I was a very lucky blogger this week as I visited Warburton’s Newburn Bakehouse factory in Newcastle and had a brilliant time! I was among a handful of influential gluten free food bloggers and members of Coeliac UK invited to learn more about the Warburton’s rebranded wheat and gluten free range. Chris Hook the MD spent loads of time with us talking about Warburton’s gluten free journey and answering all of our questions. We also had a tour of the factory which was incredibly interesting. In the fact the whole day was fascinating.
I’ll do another post about that side of it very soon but for now thought you’d like to hear some hot off the press news straight from the Bakehouse’s oven:-
- From mid March you’ll be able to buy their “bread like” gluten free crusty white rolls from Tesco and Asda. Below is a picture of said crusty rolls which needs to be baked before hand but has a great texture and crust and tasted like a regular roll (yes really!). Dave in the development bakery has spent 9 whole months perfecting these little beauties. I have to say Dave, they were 9 months well spent!
- Talking of bread, The Newburn Bakehouse have created a mulitgrain gluten-free loaf which is soft and tastes remarkably like… bread! It’ll be available from mid March too.
- The third new product developed by the bakery is a really good fruity gluten-free muffin, also available Mid March.
- Lots more products are in the pipeline including some which will make a lot of you very happy! Can’t reveal what at the moment, but be sure to watch this space.
- Chris Hook was very interested to hear my readers comments about doing a wider range of gluten free aimed at children, and individually wrapped items so fingers crossed for some development there.
- If your local corner store is always telling you they can’t order your gluten free bread because it’s too small an order. Tell them Chris says no matter how small the order is Warburtons will deliver all they have to do is set up a Warburton’s account.
I’d say that’s pretty exciting stuff don’t you?! So keep your eyes peeled for the Newburn Bakehouse new products and let me know what you think. I’ll be back with more details on my factory tour and what I learned about Warburtons approach to the wheat and gluten free market.
