The Gluten Free Shop was established in 2007 by Lauren Cooke, operating from a small shop on Cameron Road. The reason behind setting up a gluten free shop was the frustration of not being able to buy gluten free foods locally - back then the range was very limited.
In 2012 the shop was moved to bigger premises and began to carry more allergy friendly foods other than just gluten free product.
The online shop has allowed people from all over New Zealand to easily purchase gluten and allergy free food, we are 12 years old on the 10 November 2019.
In September 2019, Ricki Lunam purchased the business off the Cooke's and is excited about expanding the range of gluten free and other goodies and continuing the success of the previous decade.
