Shipton Mill is to launch a new range of gluten-free flours after opening a new purpose-built facility. 

The Gloucestershire-based milling plant has invested in new equipment for the facility, and now produces a range of flours, including rice, buckwheat, sorghum, chick pea, chestnut, oats, tapioca, potato and corn.

The flours will be available wholesale and in retailers for home bakers.

The range will be sold in 16kg sacks from mid-February, and 1kg bags soon after.

The new facility has been certified gluten-free.
