About FACT 2006


Who are we?


In today's world, processed food and its effects on health and well-being is a major issue. Since 2011 the team at Fact 2006 Limited has been researching products for the food industry to help tackle these issues and to provide viable alternatives to many of the chemical based products that can cause problems.

Fact 2006 Limited works with natural ingredients to develop alternative products for use in food production, which both improve health benefits (particularly related to intolerances and allergies) and also enhance food flavour.

The founder members of Fact 2006, Alfred and John, with the support of academic research bodies, are using their extensive food engineering experience to expand the understanding of the bio-chemical and bio-nutrition of food ingredients, to develop a range of ground breaking food products. Their research and product development process is supported by professional and academic food and nutrition research bodies. Products follow strict development processes and conform to international food standards to ensure that they can be used in the UK and throughout the world.

Alfred and John's work has resulted in the development of a number of products, including the ground-breaking Fimivita, a gluten-neutralising baking powder. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness and quality of Fimivita, they have also developed a range of gluten-free bread. You can read more about Alfred & John’s Artisan Bread here.
