The 2015 FreeFrom Food Awards shortlist is out!


The shortlist for the 2015 FreeFrom Food Awards – celebrating the best in gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and all ‘freefrom’ foods – is now out!!


From grain-free granolas and 1-minute-freefrom-microwave breads, to mail-order wheatgrass shots, Bohemian Rhapsody Kent-crafted Pilsner, traditional meat pies or spicy lamb samosas, ‘freefrom’ manufacturers have been strutting their stuff at the judging sessions for this year’s awards with a truly amazing array of gluten, wheat, dairy, soya, nut, egg, corn and no-added-sugar offerings!


After two weeks of heavy-duty tasting and arguing the merits of raw chocolate truffles over Rosemary & Olive Oil Focacette, the FreeFrom Food Awards judgeshave chosen nearly 270 products to shortlist.


‘With entries up by nearly 30% this year our 65 judges really had their work cut out,’ says Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, director of the FreeFrom Awards who chairs the judging sessions. ‘But, with their usual expertise they

managed to tease out the really exciting products that are currently pushing the boundaries of what you can successfully make ‘freefrom’.’


See below for the full list but here, in no significant order except alphabetical, are a few of the ‘highlights’ –







Notes for editors:


• The FreeFrom Food Awards, now in their 8th very successful year, are the industry’s only award for ‘freefrom food’ – gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soya-free etc.


• The awards are run by the FreeFrom Matters team who also run:
1)   The FreeFrom Skincare Awards

2)   The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards

3)   The Foodsmatter websites, one of the biggest online resources for anything to do with food allergy and intolerance.



• FreeFrom Food Awards judges included professional foodies (manufacturers, chefs and cookery writers), medics (dietitians and nutritionists) coeliacs and allergy sufferers, a dozen or so keen freefrom bloggers and a good sprinkling of ‘outsiders’ to benchmark the products against ‘normal’, non-freefrom equivalents. See the awards site for more details.


• The winners of the 2015 FreeFrom Food Awards will be announced and presented with their certificates by Antony Worrall Thompson at an invitation-only party in central London on April 22nd.

• The awards team will be Facebooking and Tweeting all shortlisted companies over the next few weeks. The awards Twitter handle is @FFFoodAwards – hashtag #FFFA15 – and this is the Facebook page
