📖 Our story


Hi there, I’m Ed. Welcome on our website.EdLI

At the end of 2014, I moved to London with a good friend from university (George) to take a fresh start after years spent working for startups. George being gluten intolerant, we both struggled finding places where we would find gluten-free beers after work.

So we started to look for pubs and bars that offer gluten-free beers and we found the process highly inefficient if not incredibly painful.
A few weeks later, London Gluten Free was ready for download on the App Store. This app was listing pubs in London where we had found gluten-free beers. After getting a bit of traction in London and very encouraging feedback from early adopters, the conclusion was clear.

“Why limit ourselves to London? What limit ourselves to beers?”

In August 2015, London Gluten Free became Gluten-Free World, an app that references pubs, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and supermarkets where people can eat gluten-free, drink gluten-free or simply shop gluten-free. The app can be used worldwide and has users sharing gluten-free spots in more than 40 countries. The app is based on a crowd-sourcing model where any user can suggest a gluten-free spot.
The vision is to connect coeliacs & people with gluten-intolerance on a simple app, dedicated to them, that will make their lives easier both at home and while on the move.
