You have probably heard us mention before how we try to cater for every customer by taking special requests.
This can be particularly important when a customer is wishing to send a hamper to someone with particular dietary requirements. Over the years we have had requests for diabetic gift baskets, gluten free hampers, halal and vegetarian hampers.
We hadn't received sufficient requests to have these as part of our standard hampers, however we are always happy to accommodate these requests by checking the ingredients of items we stock and swapping anything unsuitable. Gluten Free hampers, however, were our biggest request and so a couple of gluten free fruit hamper options were added to our range. We complimented the fruit with gluten free biscuits and chocolates.
On our "Create Your Own" website we also try to list if our cheese is suitable for vegetarians or if baked goods have been produced in a factory with nuts.
There is also some new legislation (by the Food Standard Agency ) which will apply from December 2014 with regards to food labelling & allergens. Lynne will be attending a workshop next week so as we can make sure all the food items we stock are compliant, as we don't actually manufacture or label any food items at the current time.
Is there a particular requirement you would like to see us cater for?
