2015 FreeFrom Eating Out Awards Are Now Open For Entry!

2015 FreeFrom Eating Out Awards Are Now Open For Entry!
June 10
12:45 2015

The 2015 FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, after an extremely successful launch last year,  are now open for entry. The awards, which are sponsored by Sodexo, were inspired by the new EU allergen regulations which require all food service outlets to know, and be able to tell their customers about, any of the 14 major allergens in their offer.

Initially, the food service industry was appalled by these new ‘regs’. But, six months in, they are realising that, far from being a burden, being allergen-aware can open up untapped, exciting and lucrative new markets. And what better a way to attract customers who need or want to eat ‘freefrom’ than to win a ‘freefrom’ award!!

The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are run by the team who already run the highly successful FreeFrom Food Awards, now in their ninth year and a vital fixture in the ‘freefrom’ year.

Says Wan Mak, head of Nutrition and Dietetics at Sodexo: “After such a successful launch last year, we are delighted to be sponsoring these awards for the second year. We believe they will help to raise awareness of the need to provide accurate information for allergy sufferers and those with other dietary restrictions. We feed over a million customers a year and we think it is so important that they all can eat out in safety and with confidence.”

FreeFromAwards2015Says Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, director of the awards: “We were really delighted with the response to last year’s awards and the level of dedication shown by many of our entrants. We look forward to an exciting second year and are hugely grateful to Sodexo and all our sponsors for helping us drive awareness forward.”

Categories for the 2015 awards will include, as last year:

Entry to the 2015 awards closes on 28th August. Entry forms are all to be found on the awards site here.

A shortlist will be published on 7th October.
