New Genius Thinking!
I was recently invited to attend a brand immersion event in London with Genius Gluten-Free entrepreneur, Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne, to discuss Genius’ recent product developments. Genius Gluten-Free came about as Lucinda was driven to create tasty gluten and wheat free bread for her gluten intolerant son because she was disappointed by the gluten-free breads on offer.
