Family Food Brokers represents gluten-free food manufacturers and importers to connect them with distributors and stores to sell gluten-free food products.
The gluten-free market in the U.S. has about $5 billion in annual sales, and is expected to continue to increase as consumers associate allergies and food intolerances with gluten. The gluten protein is found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye, and has been determined to cause inflammation of the small intestines in people with certain allergies and celiac disease.
Conventional stores – grocery chains and club stores – are the most important distribution channels for gluten-free foods. Grocery industry experts say that the U.S. is the most important market worldwide for gluten-free foods.
