Delicious Alchemy’s Gluten Free Charity: Live on BBC Radio Sheffield

Our Founder Emma Killilea went live on BBC Radio Sheffield this week to raise awareness of the The Delicious Alchemy Charitable Foundation.

As a coeliac, Emma is passionate about helping improve the lives of people on restricted diets – day by day. The Foundation will help to achieve this aim by donating gluten free food to UK food banks supported by the Trussell Trust, and helping research programmes and other charities improve the lives of those on free from diets.

Our first fundraising project for the Foundation is almost at its end – we are raising funds to create the ultimate gluten free guide book to help those on restricted diets adjust to their new lifestyle. ‘Goodbye Gluten, Hello Delicious’ is being written by Emma, and we need YOUR help to make it happen!

Delicious Alchemy’s Emma is up for Entrepreneur of the Year!

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that our very own Emma Killilea, founder of Delicious Alchemy, has been shortlisted for Entrepreneur of the Year in The Grocer Gold Awards 2015!

Emma GG 1

We’ve come a long way since Emma set up the company in 2006, starting out with the simple but very real idea to create a delicious-tasting range of gluten free foods. Now, with a team of 25 people, a 12-strong product range, lines in leading supermarkets and our very own production house set up in Sheffield last year, she’s as committed as ever to making gluten free products commonplace and far more delicious.

It’s safe to say Emma’s been at the head, and heart, of every single Delicious Alchemy success. But there have also been a lot of people who’ve helped out along the way. So on behalf of Emma and the Delicious Alchemy team, we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s supported us – the story certainly doesn’t end here! We’ve plenty more exciting things in the pipeline, so watch this space.
