Last May ISKCON Wales opened its new prasadam (sanctified vegetarian food) distribution factory, called Govindas Foods Ltd.
The factory produces a special vegan and gluten-free ‘cheesecake’, soon to be followed by quiche and lasagna - both vegan and gluten-free.
The ISKCON Wales project aims to increase the choice of vegan and gluten-free products available to consumers across the country. The cheesecakes will be available in 415 Holland and Barrett health food stores across the UK. The initial production will be around 6,000 cheesecakes a week.
In addition to investment from the Welsh congregation the project has been supported financially by the Welsh Assembly and Bhaktivedanta Manor.
