Inspired by love
Before founding Wholegreen Bakery in 2014, Cherie Lyden spent years working as a nutritionist and in food. After having her second child, she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism then later latent coeliac disease. Upon further investigation, her youngest daughter was also diagnosed with coeliac disease at the age of four and then Hashimoto’s disease at nine.
Passionate about food and the lack of good gluten-free food available, Cherie decided to start a bakery where everything tastes delicious, is made from scratch with real ingredients and is 100% gluten-free and coeliac accredited.
Since then Wholegreen Bakery has gone from strength to strength. Competing annually at the Royal Sydney Fine Food Awards, twice winning Champion Pastry of the Year, against glutinous pastries! Opening cafes in Waverley, Alexandria and the CBD, and delivering fresh sourdough to Harris Farm Markets & select Woolworths Metros across NSW.
Cherie Lyden has gone on to become a Brand Ambassador for Coeliac Australia, and continues to work to advocate for the coeliac community.
