TH Foods understands the importance of continuous innovation in the emerging gluten-free market. Improvements in the quality and selection of gluten-free foods available in mainstream channels are a main factor contributing to sales growth, according to market analysis by Packaged Facts. The global gluten-free market is predicted to see substantial growth, reaching a market value of $5.3 billion by 2022, according to Allied Market Research.
“Gluten-free is headed toward mainstream,” said Kim Holman, marketing director at TH Foods. “As interest rises among those with celiac disease, other gluten allergies, and the general public, we want to keep expanding our better-for-you cracker options with new products and exciting flavors.”
Crunchmaster crackers and crisps are already known for their appealing taste, having recently won the American Masters of Taste Gold Medal in the category of gluten-free cracker.
