Meet Bay


My real name is Hayley Burdett, but as a child growing up the most inspirational people in my life were my parents – and one of my nicknames they gave me was Bay.

I have grown up and still live in the beautiful Cotswolds, in south-west England. I spend all of my spare time with my friends and family, who I adore. I have always had a strong love for cooking, travel, exploring and trying new things (including food!)

I studied a degree in Creative Advertising at the University of Gloucestershire, and then embarked on a career within marketing straight after graduating.

After struggling through my career with IBS for a few years, I decided to leave the world of advertising to develop Bay’s Kitchen, to help others like me.


My Story


I had been suffering for many years with uncomfortable symptoms on a daily or weekly basis including cramps, fatigue, back pain, bloating and the other (oh so lovely) symptoms of IBS.

In 2015 I hit the limit of pain, discomfort and the inconvenience of feeling this way and finally made an appointment with a doctor. Diagnosed with IBS I was advised to follow a low FODMAP diet. I researched what low FODMAP foods I could get in the UK and was disappointed to find there was virtually nothing – so I began to make every single meal from scratch.

Bay’s Kitchen was born from a desire to create a new range of low FODMAP food products to help fellow IBS sufferers find food which is low in FODMAP’s, yet tastes great and is convenient for our fast-paced lives.

My Mission


It is my mission to continue to expand this range of Low FODMAP foods to offer people suffering with digestive issues top quality delicious food that meets their dietry needs and lifestyle.

LOW FODMAP FOODS
QUALITY INGREDIENTS
GREAT TASTE
NO COMPROMISE
INCREASE IBS AWARENESS

Living with IBS, it is also my mission to increase awareness of the condition and remove the ‘taboo’ that surrounds it, empowering more people to talk about their lives with IBS and to offer support and advice to one-another. Raised awareness of IBS and the low FODMAP diet will make the simplest of things (like eating out) far easier and more enjoyable.
