Founded in 2016, the idea for LiberEat came about from personal experiences. Our co-founder Louise was told by her GP to restrict certain foods but, as a busy nurse, she struggled to find the tools to help her source delicious foods and ingredients that she could have confidence in eating. Co-founder Barry also had a personal interest as he understood the challenges both his wife and mother faced in catering for their dietary requirements.
In the UK alone it is estimated that as many as 20% of the population have a negative reaction to food products or ingredients – that’s an astounding 13 million people who may need to adhere to dietary restrictions! And with ethical choices such as vegan and vegetarian diets becoming the fastest growing food movement, more families are looking closely at what they eat.
We understand the reality for those with dietary requirements; difficulty in interpreting food labelling, restricted variety, social exclusion, the anxiety of requiring medical interventions and, in the case of severe allergic reactions, the risk to life.
We are dedicated to making life easier and safer for those people who experience food allergies or have dietary requirements. Whether for health or lifestyle reasons, we want to take the anxiety out of buying ingredients and give real freedom when eating out to open up a world of delicious meal options.
