British bakery group Warburtons is reported to have invested £2.5m in a dedicated gluten-free production plant at its site in Newburn. The new bakery will produce a range of Warburtons gluten-free products including white and brown bread loaves and sub rolls, teacakes and crumpets.

The dedicated facility will initially employ nine people, rising to twenty within the first six months of operation.

Warburtons is the first national bread brand in the UK to diversity into the gluten-free sector. It will be competing directly with the fast growing Genius gluten-free brand, which is produced by United Central Bakeries, part of Finsbury Food Group, and is currently worth £10m at retail sales level.
