Entries invited for FreeFrom awards

The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are open for entry across seven categories including cafés and coffee shops.

The awards are being launched to coincide with the build-up to the new Food Information Regulations coming into force in December this year. All food-selling businesses will be required to provide information in some form about all 14 major allergens in the food they serve.

The awards will celebrate gluten, dairy and egg-free dishes as well as good allergen awareness. The seven categories for entry are:

  • Restaurants and hotel restaurants
  • Pubs and pub restaurants
  • Cafés, coffee shops and ‘take-aways’
  • Guest houses and B&Bs
  • Schools
  • Not-for-profit services: hospitals, prison services and the military
  • Food manufactured for foodservice.

Antony Worrall Thompson, patron of the awards, said: “The success of retail free-from products illustrates how important free-from options are. The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are an exciting opportunity for this section of consumers. They will set a bar and encourage the pursuit of excellence across the industry.”

The deadline for entries is 31 August and a shortlist will be published in mid-September with the presentations taking place on 19 November at the FoodMatters Live Event at ExCeL, east London.
