I had the pleasure of speaking with Maria and Emma about Nairn’s Gluten Free Products imported from Scotland.  Maria is the importer/distributor and Emma is the Brand Manager in the UK.  Maria clarifies the requirements of importing a product and ensuring the packaging and labelling meets Canadian standards.  Emma fills us in on the long history of oats in Scotland, as well as the origins of the Nairn’s bakery.  She details how and why Nairn’s started their gluten free product line, as well as how they source oats and test for gluten.  You can follow Nairn’s on Instagram @nairns_canada, and on Facebook at Nairn’s Oat Crackers Canada.  Recipes can be found on the UK website at  You can purchase Nairn’s products at some of the large grocery chains in Canada and online at  More recipe ideas can be found in the CCA 2021 Holiday Survival Guide – download your copy at
