£2 billion+ Free-from &
Well-being market!

The growth of Free-from food & drink has been incredible as more and more consumers realise the benefits of following a Free-from or plant-based lifestyle, with 97% of households now regularly buying food or drink marketed as being free-from.

The Free-from food & drink market is growing at a very significant +36% YoY and is now worth over £2 billion*.
