Options for special diets

Gluten-free products can be identified by the gluten-free label on our packaging. Sufferers of coeliac disease should always read product labels carefully. Our range of foods contains plenty of gluten-free products, which can be found on our website by searching for foods for special diets.

Low-lactose Atria products bear a marking declaring that they are low in lactose, and the amount of lactose is stated below the nutritional information table.

Lactose-free products containing milk ingredients are labelled as lactose-free on Atria's packaging. Products that do not contain any milk-based ingredients are not labelled as lactose-free. However, such products are lactose-free and are suitable for lactose-free diets.

Declaring allergens on food packaging
