About Us

Based in North Wales, The Low-Carb Food Company was formed in May 2018 to develop an opportunity to provide specialist support to the ever-expanding low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle community.

Our Mission

Building upon first-hand experience of successfully implementing a low-carb lifestyle to combat type 2 diabetes, The Low-Carb Food Company aims to become a thriving online marketplace; a trustworthy source of knowledge, recipes, products and ingredients for anyone interested in reaping the benefits of a low-carb lifestyle.

We want to make it easier for people to adopt a low-carb lifestyle; curbing the effects of diabetes without the need for medication, enabling weight loss without the hunger pangs, and promoting general good health with low-carb staple foods.

The Company Directors

In 2009, Eryl was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. After struggling for years to control the disease, he made a breakthrough in 2016 after adopting a LCHF lifestyle. Having retired from the renewable energy industry in 2016, he founded Diabetes Support Wales in 2017 with a view of establishing self-help support groups for diabetics throughout Wales.

The Low-Carb Food Company is the result of Eryl's personal experience of  managing diabetes, and the belief that good food is the best medicine.
