Its award-winning cereals are low in sugar and high in fibre and protein and made with the superior natural ingredients which are baked by hand.
Maria's family had a tearooms and guesthouse in Glendalough, County Wicklow, during her childhood where everything served to guests was homemade. Helping her mother in the kitchen during the school holidays instilled a love of baking.
The idea to start a gluten-free food business came about when a gluten intolerant friend stayed with Maria. She adapted her recipes to suit her guest, and inspired by her friend's reaction, she took the first step towards turning her passion into a business.
Today, Maria Lucia Bakes range is available in Supermarkets, convenience stores, independent retailers in Ireland and in several overseas markets
