Plamil Foods (Folkestone, Kent) is a specialist dairy- and gluten-free chocolate company that is launching a range of foodservice and catering chocolate products.

MD Adrian Ling says: "With an increasing number of products in ’free from’ ranges where chocolate is an inclusion or ingredient, we are proud that we are able to offer specialist chocolate formulations meeting this criterion."

Plamil’s chocolates contain soya flour and there are organic alternatives. The company also makes carob bars, chocolate spreads, milk alternatives and egg-free mayonnaises.
