Why work with Coeliac UK?
- We are the oldest and largest coeliac disease charity in the world.
- We are a founding member of the Association of European Coeliac Societies and have ties internationally.
- With over 60,000 Members and 12,000 new Members a year, we offer the best opportunity for targeting the lucrative gluten-free market.
As a charity, Coeliac UK relies upon income from our Members, donors and commercial partners to enable us to continue providing unique and much needed support and information to people with coeliac disease. We receive no government funding.
We strongly believe that by working closely with our commercial partners we are able to develop strong and effective relationships. These not only support and enhance our activities, but also help our commercial partners to achieve their marketing objectives.
Our Commercial Team is actively engaged in working with over 1,000 companies throughout the UK. These include everything from large specialist gluten-free manufacturers, to major retailers, high street restaurant chains, individual restaurants and small businesses. All are equally important to us and our Members.
Advertising to our Members presents a big opportunity. The UK Free From market is estimated to be £365 million and is forecast to grow 50% by 2019 (Mintel). With 13% of the UK population estimated to be avoiding gluten (Mintel) can you afford to miss this opportunity?
