Gluten-free growth: Polson, Montana-based Gluten Free Mama expands to national distribution

May 22, 2012View for printing


Rachel Carlyle Edington and her two youngest daughters served gluten-free pastry samples to a big crowd at the Women 4 Wellness fair last week at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo.

As friends moved through the crowd, Edington paused long enough to give hugs and say hello as she explained her products to potential customers.

Meanwhile, Edington's Gluten Free Mama products have just been introduced to 200 Safeway stores nationwide and Whole Foods is reviewing her products for potential distribution in its stores.


The next five years will be a pivotal time for the business. With a certified gluten-free kitchen, Edington is considering offering her facility to other gluten-free manufacturers. She's also mapping out a plan for what happens when the company reaches the point of needing major capital investment.
