Rule of Crumb was borne from a recognition by business partners Colum McLornan and Claire Hunter, both successful hoteliers, who saw a void in the gluten–free supply chain to restaurants and other hospitality establishments initially in Northern Ireland. The products are now on sale in other parts of the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Formed in 2013, Rule of Crumb’s product range covers breakfast cereals, chicken kievs, breaded fish, part–baked bread and muffins for both retail and foodservice customers.
Two other Northern Ireland companies gained awards at the event.
Doherty’s Meats in Derry gained a bronze for its gluten–free meat balls in Meat Dishes and Ready Meals and a bronze also went to CocoMojo, a Lisburn company, for its Bean drink of coconut milk, coconut water and coffee.
