Gluten Free Food Show
Our launch Several weeks have flown by very fast since the whirlwind of the Melbourne Gluten Free Show. Attendances on both days were verystrong and constant, suggesting a rising interest in all things gluten free. We also noticed there were a surprisingly large number of ‘fructose' intolerant visitors. If you talked to one of our team on the day, you will probably know that our site is community based - that is, it exists for you. It is a Gluten free ‘Living and Lifestyle' site bringing gluten free options together in one portal making your search easier. We aim to bring you as much choice as we can for gluten free living. Whether it's restaurants, retailers, manufacturers, kids or beauty products you are after, we are building a Gluten Free Business Directory which covers it all.
What we are doing for you!
Our Gluten Free Business Directory is a free service which is quickly growing but please be patient as we are a relatively new site. We are also diversifying by not only bringing you food options but by searching out activities or events where gluten free food is provided, so you can make a day or night of it.
Whether it be trivia nights, shows, events, children's activities we aim to make it easier for you to get out and about by letting you know what's on. You can also find new and different gluten free products on the site and for those of you who have 3G capability on your mobile phones our SMS Beam Me facility is there for you to use for FREE for when you need to find a restaurant or cafe on the run. Our Forums exist so you can enjoy gluten free conversations and meet some great people. We look forward to you visiting our site regularly for special offers and the latest gf information.
What you can do for us?
To help our site grow quicker you can help us by submitting your favourite gluten free eating places via our 'Client, Submit listing' menu. You can also let eateries know that when they take up an enhanced listing, they can join our ‘GFP loyalty club' so you can enjoy discounts. If you have any great ideas for our site or any new categories you would like to see in the directory please let us know via our Contact page. If you miss viewing our website for a while this newsletter is the best way to keep you in touch with what's available in gluten free living!
