Red Plate Foods is on a mission to connect people over delicious foods that are safe for everyone, including people with food allergies and celiac disease. We like to say that we aren’t in the business of making cookies, cupcakes, granola or muffins – we’re in the business of making life “normal” for people with special diets.
Red Plate makes baked goods that are vegan and free of the top 9 food allergens (gluten/wheat, dairy, peanut, tree nut, soy, egg, fish, shellfish and sesame) in a dedicated facility located in Bend, Oregon. Our products can be found in the fresh bakery departments of retail grocers in the Western United States (quickly spreading across the U.S.!) and are also available through Sysco to food service operators.
Company founders, Becca, and Chell Williams deal with severe food allergies on a daily basis. Chell had to administer epinephrine shots multiple times when Becca was going into anaphylactic shock due to her dairy allergy. She developed a life-threatening allergic reaction to dairy in addition to a severe gluten intolerance after the birth of their fourth child.
When a nephew was diagnosed as a toddler with peanut and tree nut allergies, Becca and Chell Williams realized there were few pre-made foods that the entire family could eat safely together. They quickly discovered that many other families were navigating life with multiple food allergies and sensitivities.
As many as 15 million people in the United States suffer from food allergies, and nearly 1/3 of U.S. adults follow a restricted diet because of food intolerances. For many families, enjoying celebration foods like cupcakes and cookies as well as healthful snacks is a challenge. Today, Red Plate Foods provides safe products for people with multiple food allergies and intolerances.
The Red Plate Foods Tradition
The name “Red Plate Foods” comes from a family tradition started in the 1970’s. Today, the Williams family continues to recognize accomplishments and special events like birthdays by serving the special person with a red plate. It’s a tradition started back in the 1970’s that continues with YOU!
Our mission is to make good tasting food for everyone to enjoy, regardless of dietary needs or choices. We invite you to indulge, relax and reconnect with your family and friends again, sharing a special Red Plate moment!
