The FreeFrom Hero Award
This special award recognises a true hero in the freefrom community. Whether it’s a caring school cook who caters for complex or multiple freefrom diets, a community cafe that provides freefrom food for just one customer, an innovative cook meeting freefrom needs during lockdown, a CEO who has altered manufacture protocols to ensure food safety, an NPD team member who removes unnecessary allergens from a product – or someone who goes above and beyond without even thinking about it – please see below for our recent FreeFrom Heroes!
