Artisan Bakery Delicious Poised for Growth

Delicious is one of Ireland’s fast growing artisan bakery success stories, specialising in gluten, wheat and yeast free cakes and breads and endorsed by the Irish Coeliac Society. Company success for Delicious has been remarkable in this niche market, with the company looking to further expand their range of alternative gluten free bakery goods. Oakland International’s extensive experience of working with Irish and UK multiples has added value to the relationship, with Delicious enjoying the ability to add new accounts and product lines as and when needed. Oakland International general manager, Richard Hill, commented: “Delicious bake great tasting gluten and wheat free cakes and breads, which are simply delicious and we are delighted to be supporting and assisting them as they concentrate on their expansion focusing instead on developing sales, and increased marketing of their Delicious products.” The Delicious philosophy is all about having cake and enjoying it, with the idea being that for those on a restrictive diet it shouldn’t mean a restricted food experience. Delicious MD, Denise O’Callaghan, commented: “We approached Oakland as we were aware of their excellent reputation for efficiency and systematic approach, both here in Ireland and the UK. Their team not only understand, but can predict our needs, reassurance for us that we are in safe hands as we continue to grow and expand. “Delicious enjoys the same level of attention and expertise as larger companies in our sector, and in a nutshell Oakland offers flexibility, efficiency and importantly there are no volume restrictions. A definite benefit is their open approach to business, which is superb.” With plans to further extend in the near future, Delicious, the gluten free bakery’s firm intention is to increase retail channels nationwide.
