2016 Irish FreeFrom Food Awards Winners
Congratulations to all the winners of Ireland’s first FreeFrom Food Awards, who celebrated their wins at a black tie gala event in the Round Room at the Mansion House in Dublin last night.
The Awards were by set up by John Burke, an Irish businessman and coeliac, who has long been involved in the FreeFrom world, both at home and in the UK.
Emma Clarke Conway from Express PR, who has worked in the coeliac arena for over 12 years presented the awards with almost 120 plus prizes given out on the night to the entrants, who came from across Ireland, Scotland, throughout the UK and even as far as Sweden.
There were gold, silver and bronze awards in each category. Winning can make a significant difference to producers and open distribution and retail streams that may not have been available previously. It also helps consumers discern the best foods out of an array of offerings in the freefrom section of the supermarket.
“This is the first year of the FreeFrom Food Awards and we are thrilled with the response”, said John Burke. “Our judging panels deliberated hard over each category and no award was given without careful consideration. At the end of the day, the FreeFrom consumer deserves the best, which is what we have awarded tonight.”
