OMG Perth Central
Hot Fresh Donuts that are Gluten free and Vegan - that everone can love!
Meet Ivan the latest OMG Licensee and the first for WA
Q1 Do you personally or your family have any food allergies or intolerance’s ?
Yes I’m coeliac but fortunately I’m the only one in the family. The disease made me very empathetic to others who have the same and other food allergies/intolerance’s. I have always been the type of person that has eaten whatever I’ve wanted and now I’ve found it personally very difficult to find food that I can eat whilst out. Some restaurants claim a dish is gluten free but improper care is taken to avoid cross contamination something coeliac’s know only all too well.
Q2 What drew you to establishing an OMG Decadent Donut License in WA?
I figured that with my own CD and also being a member of the coeliac Facebook group and all the trouble other people have finding food to eat whilst out, then other people might face the same challenges. The number of people with food allergies, intolerance’s or preferences is vast and growing so it just made sense. The business model for OMG was sound and the people who started it up have been great to deal with. And most importantly who doesn’t love donuts ?
Q3 Where do you hope to take the business?
I’m looking forward to establishing in a number of the major markets both north and south of the river and also looking at some of the major music festivals, fetes and expos. I also want to get some other people involved so we can all service our community. Just because we have an autoimmune disease shouldn’t stop us from enjoying all aspects of life.
Q4 Is there anything else you would like to say ?
What makes my day is watching people’s expressions as they bite into one of our decadent donuts, it’s a look of pure joy and is something we never tire of. I have no idea of the number of times someone has returned to say “I haven’t had a donut in 20 years and I’m in heaven” It doesn’t get old.
When most people think of a vegan and gluten/egg/dairy/nut free bakery product, they tend to think – dry, heavy, cardboard and bland, but through trial and error and working closely with food technicians, we have perfected a truly light, fluffy and devilishly moorish donut that has everyone coming back for more.
Our donuts are so unique that Vegan Australia, Coeliac Australia and more recently Kosher Australia and Halal Australia have accredited our company, setting a benchmark for continued quality and excellence.
