Free-from bakery firm Droppa & Droppa Specialist Foods has won a contract to supply a number of its gluten-, wheat- and dairy-free breads to London-firm The Bread Factory.

Hendon-based The Bread Factory supplies artisan breads and morning goods to a number of top restaurants and hotels in London, and has a six-outlet retail business Gail’s.

“We have tried many gluten-free breads in the past, but none match up to the taste and texture of Droppa & Droppa’s bread,” said Dana Laor, customer care manager at The Bread Factory. “Our clients are very excited about serving exceptional gluten-free breads to their customers, including poppy seed and sun-dried tomato & basil loaves.”

Family business Droppa & Droppa already supplies The Lanesborough Hotel in Hyde Park and The Runnymede Hotel in Windsor, as well as several independent cafés, restaurants, health food shops and direct to the consumer via its web-based mail order business.

“By supplying The Bread Factory we hope that coeliacs and those who are wheat and/or dairy intolerant can enjoy good baked goods as much as the next person,” commented joint-owner Jocelyn Droppa.
