Aberdeenshire-based shortbread and biscuit manufacturer Dean’s has launched a new coeliac-friendly range, which contains three varieties. 

Certified by Coeliac UK, the range includes All Butter, Choc Chip and Choc Chip & Stem Ginger. Available online and in Dean’s gift shop, as well as at selected retailers, the gluten-free range is £2.79 for a 150g pack (RRP).

Bill Dean, managing director, said: “We’ve been asked by customers many times over recent years to develop gluten-free shortbread products.

“We’ve spent a considerable time working on these recipes in order to create the same delicious buttery taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture consumers have come to expect from Dean’s. We’re very happy that consumers who follow a gluten-free diet will now be able to enjoy Dean’s shortbread.”

Dean’s employs around 130 people, and exports their products to 28 countries around the world.
