Obviously coeliac see things differently to the supermarkets and to me the thing they get wrong is the selection of free from foods depends on the size of the store so coeliac tend to get a better selection at the hypermarkets and no selection from the 24 hour mini town center ones.
So should coeliac lobby the big supermarkets to keep a range of free from products in the mini town center stores?
This might not be as daft as it first sounds as the free from shelves cater for lactose free/wheatfree as well. They probably have higher profit margins. Also it would not hurt a non coeliac to buy for example a packet of trufree custard creams on impulse whilst buying milk etc late at night, whereas the diference to a coeliac would be great, knowing they could buy a loaf of Genius or some gf crakers.
I have a 24 hour garage close to where I live and I went in there at 5 am having been travelling all night and as well as petrol I bought some milk and a packet of Mrs Crimbles chocolate macaroons, this really cheered me up and made me realise how shops need to cater for those of us with special dietary needs. And they need to change their attitude to free from foods and see them as essential and stock them as a priority in their small mini markets.
