E-Factor winners My Gammies open commercial kitchen

My Gammies, winners of UEL Enterprise's Start-Up competition E-Factor, have cut the ribbon, opening their new production kitchen.

My Gammies, winners of UEL Enterprise's Start-Up competition E-Factor, have cut the ribbon, opening their new production kitchen.
 
Last November, UEL psychology student Rebekha Gooden and her mother and business partner, Marie-Anne Rasé, a UEL alumna, impressed judges with their business idea for allergy friendly natural food. They beat off strong competition to secure a £6,000 investment and a range of business support. Since then the pair have put their money to good work setting up a production kitchen in their home in Walthamstow. The kitchen includes new bread mixers, a commercial oven, preparation tables, baker racks and baking utensils. Rebekha expressed her gratitude at the support received during and after their E-Factor success, "Our renovated kitchen and newly purchased equipment is imperative to the success of our business and the safety of our products in relation to allergen contamination possibilities." "Since winning the competition the support we have received through UEL Enterprise from partner organisations such as Yclip and GetSet For Growth have been phenomenal. Their involvement has helped us with clarifying and powerfully implementing our business model" Marie-Anne and Rebekha are now concentrating putting their new kitchen to good work and hope to launch their new product line in the forthcoming months.
