Exciting news
New category revealed!

We are delighted to announce a new award category – Free-from Manufacturing Company of the Year.

This award celebrates manufacturers that have demonstrated excellence in one or more free-from category over the past 12 months. Qualifying products can be free-from any one of the 14 main allergens listed by the Food Standards Agency.

And, with up one-fifth of all new product launches in the UK now vegan, we are also including manufacturers of plant-based meat alternatives within this award. The new category joins a line-up of 15 bespoke categories for you to choose from, giving you plenty of reasons to get involved!

In recognising achievement, we will continue to judge entries in two streams: companies with turnovers
of £10m or less and those with more than £10m, to allow all to be treated fairly.

You don’t have to be perfect to win, nor do you have to be splashing around vast sums of cash on investment. All you need to do is demonstrate genuine innovation, impressive achievements in the field of processing, a passion for excellence and an ability to go the extra mile to deliver what customers and, ultimately, consumers want.
