Nourished: The Gluten-Free, Allergy & Special Diet Festival, formerly The Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo, is excited to announce its re-launch in 2019 with expanded offerings and new locations.
In an effort to better accommodate the approximately 15 million people in the United States who have food allergies, sensitivities and follow special diets, The Nourished Festival will be adding a vast array of exhibitors to meet the current needs of the most popular food lifestyles. In addition to the existing Gluten-Free and Nut-Free zones, Paleo, Keto, and Plant-Based zones will provide exciting new products and educational opportunities. As in the past, all products at the festival will be gluten free, and allergen cards will be displayed for all samples. The Festival is also adding a Kid’s Zone with fun activities for children and a place for families to gather throughout the event.
“For 12 years, attendees have enjoyed our gluten-free and allergen-friendly events,” says Jen Cafferty, Founder and CEO of The Nourished Group, formerly The Gluten Free Media Group. “As the gluten-free movement advances, we are seeing more people adopt other special diets including Paleo, Keto and Plant-Based lifestyles. Our festivals will continue to meet the needs of our gluten-free and allergen-friendly community, and our new zones will allow us to expand to meet the needs of those following Paleo, Keto and Plant-Based lifestyles. The goal is to continue to support our attendees and grow with them as their diets change over time.”
