About us

Global Bounty has a wealth of experience in its directors and staff

With decades of experience in the food industry between them, our directors have developed some of the world’s most popular ‘free from’ food brands. Our associations and partnerships across the globe regularly bring us into contact with new people and fantastic tasting products.  With many years working in the health food industry we are able to spot an opening in the market place for new, innovative products.

Our experience has also led to us producing our own ranges in the UK for our discerning consumers. We always like to talk to like minded people, so if you are interested in what we do, or what we can do for you please get in touch.
