Firebird Artisan Mills and MyBread Gluten-Free Bakery
Recipe for Success
Chicago, IL – July 14, 2016 – Firebird Artisan Mills is a full-service, dedicated gluten-free mill based in Harvey, ND that is at the forefront of gluten-free and allergen-free launches. With their rigorous safety practices, extensive industry knowledge, and quick response times, Firebird has earned a reputation for being a valuable strategic partner.
Firebird will be participating in the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Expo held July 16–19 in Chicago. The event showcases the industry’s largest collection of food ingredients, equipment, processing and packaging suppliers, all under one roof.
One of Firebird’s many successful partnerships is MyBread Gluten-Free Bakery, a well-known bakery in the Chicago area. MyBread Gluten-Free Bakery began as a one-man artisanal bakery founded by a diagnosed celiac with a singular vision: to provide a delicious, versatile, gluten-free bread alternative. Over time, founder Dan Gallagher refined a recipe for a gluten-free flatbread that celiac sufferers could use for anything from pizza to sandwich buns.
“I was baking in the evening and selling in the morning, trying to get off the ground, and Firebird was extremely supportive from the beginning,” Gallagher said. “Chris Krenzel’s industry knowledge, from pricing to blending to sourcing, made a huge difference for me as a small business owner.”
At the outset, MyBread sourced 10 to 12 bags of flour through Firebird and blended onsite. As the business grew, so did Gallagher’s needs.
“Chris showed me how Firebird could help keep the product consistent and save time and cost with custom blending. Everybody says they want to partner,” he added, “but Firebird truly is a phenomenal strategic partner. Their safety and operations standards, their response times—everyone on the team makes you feel like your success is their priority.”
As for Firebird Artisan Mills, their work with pulses and ancient grains continues to keep them at the forefront of gluten-free and allergen-free product launches for business owners like Gallagher. “We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Dan,” says Chris Krenzel, Director of Sales. “Not only are his products first rate, he has truly made a difference in his home community and the celiac community.”
