Droppa & Droppa no longer available

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.

  1. Yes, to run an independent specialty niche store can be trying to say the least. However, I firmly believe that the Celiac community around the world, no matter where, is one of the most supportive groups of clients ANY business can wish for. Never in my life have I seen such a well supported group of people, be by their own or their family members.
    In Victoria’s little bakery you can hear it all the time. A recommendation from a friend, or buying for a relative who is on a GF Diet and so on.

    Tight budgeting, good, consistent quality and some guerilla marketing can go a long way in this niche for gluten free products.

  2. Nice to see you here – we’ve ‘met’ over at the Gluten Free Network, I think. I wish we were close enough to come and visit Victoria’s bakery!

    I’ve just learnt that Droppa & Droppa are regrouping, and trying to rebuild their business. Good news for all.
