Vegan, gluten free Christmas cake slice at Costa
Our parent company, Bells of Lazonby has been working with Costa for 7 years – providing over 330,000 products a week to it’s 1,800 UK outlets and wider across Europe and the Middle East.
Off the back of the success of the gluten, wheat and dairy free “Crimbo Crumble” suitable for vegans which we made in our dedicated gluten, wheat and dairy free Bakery for Costa last year, we have produced a new gluten, wheat and dairy free Christmas cake slice for 2016! We are hopeful this will have even more success than our previous innovation and will help those with specific dietary requirements and lifestyle choices to continue to choose Costa for their coffee and cake breaks.
Jennifer Beaumont, dessert product development manager for Costa, said: “The rich icing and moreish cake complement our handcrafted coffees perfectly and are always a winner with customers.
“We are proud to support UK based businesses, and we’re excited to be able to offer Bells of Lazonby baked goods in our stores.”
Our New Product Development manager, Carolyn said: “Working with Costa has really helped our business grow.
“We have gained the confidence to invest in new people and processes and now have a bakery apprenticeship scheme to empower young employees and make sure we keep bringing baked goods to the nation.”
Jennifer added: “We look forward to continuing our partnership and seeing what other tasty treats we can create with them in the future.”
