The FreeFrom Food Awards took place in Ireland in 2016 for the first time and were hugely successful, with many brands benefiting from the opportunity to herald their products as award winning. Product of the Year winner 2016, Rule of Crumb were listed in over 450 Sainsbury’s stores with their Gluten Free Profiterole and latterly in Iceland.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are granted, along with a Merit badge for products still considered high quality by the judges. Winners may display the relevant badge on their packaging, which helps consumers wading through the extensive freefrom sections of stores to discern which products are best. Categories are diverse from pasta to ready meals, cakes to crisps and bread products to breakfast cereals.
Freefrom Food Awards Ireland was established independently by John Burke, founder of GFLife. The FreeFrom Food Awards, were originally started in the UK in 2007, being the only industry awards for FreeFrom foods, by FoodsMatter and FreeFrom Foods Matter. Having been a judge at the UK FreeFrom Food Awards for over 7 years, John adapted the awards format for an Irish setting. This is our fifth year.
"Juvela are delighted to continue our association with the annual FreeFrom Food Awards Ireland. This award programme goes from strength to strength highlighting the excellent quality and impressive range of diverse entries that go before the judges every year. Our sponsorship of the award for Services to the Industry allows us to highlight the input and dedication of people in the FreeFrom arena, where we ourselves are a stalwart brand for over 25 years. We look forward to once again sponsoring this important award for the freefrom community in the 2019 FreeFrom Food Awards Ireland."
