Update: They’re back! Orders will be accepted again from Monday 1 September! Go on, show them how much we love them …

I’ve just received an email to let me know that Droppa & Droppa have ceased trading, as of today.

They were a small specialist company in Devon that produced wheat gluten and dairy (but not taste) free cakes, bread, pies and tarts, and I’m sorry to see them go.  It’s always a shame to lose an independent producer of gluten free foods, but market conditions are harsh, and I suspect it’s only going to get worse as the financial crisis bites deeper.

It is particularly sad because they have been frequent contributors to the gluten free message board, and have worked hard to provide good service.
