We know that gluten free products are in high demand and finding these can be challenging at times, so we’re thrilled to tell you that Co-op is the first retailer to make all our own brand fresh soups completely gluten free.

This doesn’t just include our core range of Tomato & Basil, Carrot & Coriander and Minestrone it includes all our Irresistible range.

As well as being gluten free, the majority of our own brand soups are vegetarian and/or vegan, just look out for the “V” symbol on the packaging.

We’ve recently introduced new flavours to our gluten free range; Lentil Dahl Soup, a Dahl inspired with carrot, sweet potato, tomatoes and chickpeas with lentils, and Irresistible Red Thai Chicken Soup, a Red Thai curry inspired soup with skinless British chicken thigh, coconut, red pepper, lemongrass, lime leaf and Thai basil.

How can I identify free from gluten products?GFLOGO

With most Co-op own brand products it’s really simple, just look for the purple symbol which simply indicates gluten free products. There are some products which don’t have this symbol but we’re updating them as soon as we can.

  6. It would have been better if the cut stem symbol was the same as the already recognised one.

  8. Far better you ensured that your meat products are cruelty free. Clearly marking on the label that the animals were fully stunned prior to slaughter, I am sure there are far more of your customers concerned over this than there are coeliac customers.

    • Maggie your reply is wrong. I support animal welfare in fact some of my best friends are animals, however, if one eats animal products sourced ethically or non ethically, it is unlikely that will cause illness, however, eating gluten does cause illness of varying severity. Please carry on your work lobbying corporate suppliers of food over animal welfare, but do not criticise them when they make an improvement in one area of food production and food labelling, simply because it does not meet with your current thoughts on meat!
