It was such an easy process using the website, then to navigate around the site and find the products that I wanted was simple! I was really impressed with the layout, and how you can choose your intolerances. What a great idea! - Cassie Wells - Orgran Natural Foods
I have run my own restaurant for almost 10 years now and only recently my customers have been requesting gluten free meals. Being unaware of their needs, I turned to the What can I eat site and was pleased to find a selection of products I now use in my restaurant. Being able to provide these meals has definitely increased customer loyalty.
