HOW WE KEEP OUR MEALS GLUTEN FREE
Nourish'd is not only committed to a 100% gluten free product, but we're also committed to complete transparency with our customers, so you can truly feel safe knowing your meals are not going to contain even traces of gluten.
So how do we make that happen, even when the kitchen facility we use does produce other, gluten containing products? Through our strict Allergen Management Plan. Here's a breakdown of what that looks like:
THE NOURISH'D ALLERGEN MANAGEMENT PLAN
1. RECEIVING & HANDLING PRODUCT
All product labelling must be checked and signed off on arrival for gluten free compliance - both in ingredients list, and allergen statement.
All product must be inspected for damage and/or breakage to the packaging, to ensure no cross contamination after its production.
Any product not compliant with the above, will not be permitted entry into the Nourish'd pantry, and will be returned to the supplier as soon as possible.
All Nourish'd product must be stored in its original packaging and within a sealed, air tight container.
All Nourish'd product is stored in its own, clearly designated and colour coded area of the kitchen pantry.
The designated area of kitchen pantry for Nourish'd product will always be above any other product, to prevent cross contamination through gravity.
3. HANDLING DURING PRODUCTION
All Nourish'd product in the kitchen must be labelled as 'NOURISH'D PRODUCT ONLY' - meaning that even if the product is an ingredient in a recipe that is being produced for another brand, it cannot be used.
Further, the kitchen is restricted to only one product run at a time. Meaning, that when Nourish'd meals are being prepared, no other products can be prepared in the facility.
Recipes are followed exactly - no substitutes can be made without express authorisation from the Nourish'd founders.
The kitchen is scheduled for deep clean and sanitisation before and after all production runs. This includes, but is not limited to, utensils, tools, containers, cooking equipment, and cooking machinery.
All disposable PPE, including hairnets, coveralls, beard protectors, and gloves are disposed off at the end of each production.
All staff clothing, including outer garments such as aprons, are to be washed post production/prior to the next production run.

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
As a human living with a pretty bad gluten intolerance (like, my food was prepared on a board that touched some bread and now I'm in considerable pain, intolerance), it is absolutely my mission to ensure that when we say we're 100% gluten free, we really are.
I would love to be able to tell you we produce out of a wholly Gluten Free facility, but unfortunately there just aren't that many of them around, particularly in South East Queensland.
We have taken every measure possible though to ensure your safety with the Nourish'd Allergen Management Plan, and in all the time we have been around (closing in on a decade!), we have had not one reported incident of gluten contamination in our meals. I for one can attest to that - having consumed some of almost every batch that has ever come off the production line!
Gluten intolerance is tough, not many people really get it. I've got you covered.
