'What a great event last night! And I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the judges for awarding the top prize to Focaccia per Tutti. It is wonderful that a small producer like Anni can get that level of recognition. You have made her dreams come true in the most magnificent way. She's worked really hard and is very passionate about what she is doing – a great example of what is possible.
There is so much enthusiasm to do better and make better products and certainly the Free From Awards make the journey more exciting. So thanks again!"

The awards, founded and run by FreeFromFoodsMatter, the web's most comprehensive resource for free-from food, celebrate the innovation and imagination shown by the food industry in creating foods that are free of wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, soya or sulphites.
Over the last seven years the awards have become one
of the most important fixtures in the freefrom year.
And over those years the bright yellow awards logo has become recognised as the mark of quality for freefrom foods, widely displayed on winning, commended and shortlisted products on sale everywhere from supermarket shelves to on-line specialist suppliers.
The 2013 awards were presented by Antony Worrall Thompson on
April 16th 2013 at the
Royal College of Physicians
in Regent's Park.

Says Antony Worrall Thompson of the awards:
I have been involved with the FreeFrom Food Awards from the start and am really delighted at the way they have grown. FreeFrom is becoming such an important part of food-thinking for all of us these days that it is important to have a reliable, independent guide to freefrom excellence – and the awards provide just that.
Says Phil Vickery, author of Seriously Good Gluten-free Cooking and now, Seriously Good Gluten-free Baking:
It is only since the publication of my two gluten-free cookbooks that I have realised how big the market for 'freefrom' food actually is and how fast it is growing. It is great to see that quality, innovation and effort are now being recognised in such a positive way. Good luck to the FreeFrom Food Awards!
