Creation of a Food Fab lab - We want to create a research and development structure in the food area. We will offer facilities, work material, equipment, and knowledge.
Glu Glu Free opened its space to the public, initially with the focus of offering a different, healthy and gluten-free menu. But what started with a small pastry shop in the center of the city, quickly took on a much larger dimension and now we have national distribution in more than 60 points of sale across the country.
We will embrace the year 2020 with several changes in our facilities, one of which will be the creation of a Fab lab (aimed at developing food production).
We are a young team with an entrepreneurial spirit, with the creation and implementation of our brand in the market, we acquired a huge bag of knowledge and the ability to "make it happen" with very few resources. In this sense, we want to share our experience and facilities with young entrepreneurs who want to make their projects a reality. Or who knows, test new innovative products before entering the market.
We will create different zones for production, testing, product analysis, image development, packaging, marketing, as well as a cafeteria space where you can test the product and the final customer's feedback in real time.
In addition to several workspaces, we want to create the necessary conditions for Networking and exchange of knowledge between entrepreneurs.
We have some requirements: you must have an open mind, the ability to work as a team and you will have to follow all predefined food safety rules. Another requirement: all products to be developed in our facilities must be gluten-free (as we are APC - Associação Portuguesa de Celíacos).
With this initiative, we want to promote the consumption of products as natural as possible, and raise awareness among the population of the need for a range of food products that are safe for the Celiac community, or that are sensitive to gluten, which are increasing more and more.
