Bath Bakery’s Batch #5 range has been awarded the Cross Grain Symbol, following testing of its gluten-free products. 

The bakery, which launched the free-from range earlier this year, invested in a new production facility at Farrington Gurney, specifically for the Batch#5 range, to avoid contamination.

The symbol is internationally recognised, and is awarded by Coeliac UK after independent certification.

Mark Slevin, Bath Bakery’s managing director, said: “I'm a firm believer that if something’s worth doing then it’s worth doing right.

“When we looked at introducing a gluten-free range of goods it was clear that just using gluten-free ingredients wasn’t enough and, from scratch, we had to create an environment free from any possible risk of gluten contamination.

“People who want a wheat-free lifestyle, who have wheat or gluten intolerance or are coeliac sufferers are sometimes a little suspicious of products produced in a bakery.

“That’s why we opened an entirely new production facility which is completely gluten-free with all risk of contamination eliminated.”

He added: “Even the bakers’ sandwiches for lunch have to be zero gluten!”

Bath Bakery employs more than 100 people in its 12 shops located in and around the city of Bath.
