Crate of Nothing


Liam Doolan

Industrial Design and Technology (2011)

Crate of Nothing provides those who follow a gluten or dairy free diet with delicious meals, ingredients, snacks and recipes. Sourcing products from the finest artisan bakers and chefs in the UK who specialise in gluten and diary free food, enables Crate of Nothing to offer a wide range of free-from food that isn’t readily available in supermarkets.

The first crate – ‘The Sweet One’ was delivered on 1st February and provided customers with products including diary-free cake pops, macaroons, baking ingredients and a recipe from the Blogger of the Month.

I have quite a few friends who are gluten and dairy intolerant. I was fed up of them having to settle for fruit salad for dessert and missing out on the tastiness of cake! I knew there had to be bakers and chefs out there under the radar who would jump at the chance to change the face of free-from food.
