From September 2013, Wiltshire Farm Foods stopped using peanuts or tree nuts as an ingredient in any of the foods we prepare in our kitchens. Since then we have been working hard to remove all risk of nut traces contaminating the ingredients we buy, although we are not yet a in a position to guarantee that all of our products are 100% free from traces of tree nut and peanut and so will be labelling ‘nut free’.
If your dietary requirements mean you need foods that are free from nuts and peanuts, please choose meals from our Free From range
We will continue to supply foods that intentionally contain nuts through the use of third party food manufacturers who will produce and label food to our strict specifications. Such foods shall only be handled by Wiltshire Farm Foods when fully sealed in their original packaging.
Please Check The Label
Please note that ingredients may change from time to time to improve quality and flavour. This means more than one recipe could be in circulation. Full ingredients and cooking instructions for all our meals are available on this website. Whilst every effort has been made to minimise changes, we do advise that you refer to the label on your meals/other items if you have special dietary needs as this will show any allergens contained in the ingredients of your chosen dishes. If you are not satisfied with the ingredients in any of your dishes please return them for a full refund.

We understand how difficult it can be to choose ready meals when you have specific dietary needs and requirements. That’s why we have a clear and consistent system for labelling our special diets meals and using industry standard diet codes.
