Gozo Deli Basil Pesto Casheese

'Tangy, beautifully light, smooth and lovely garlic notes. Wonderful to see a dairy-free cheese with no soya and with such a fresh ingredient list.'
'Very more-ish – wish I wasn't just tasting – could eat the lot!'
'Great product – gluten, dairy and soya free! Good as a sauce or a spread. Very useful and excellent ingredients.'


Highly Commended

Origin Earth Gluten Free Crackers

'They look good and have an excellent texture – short and crisp. Nice and salty, not oversweet. Good level of protein. Way out ahead of all other available gluten and dairy-free crackers and innovative as they are virtually fat free but high in protein.'

Sweet Rebellion Dairy Free Chocolate Frozen Dessert

'Delicious and creamy – and free from all main allergens. It would be difficult to tell this apart from luxury ice cream. Lovely sweetness for sugar free – clever. So good to find a dairy-free ice with no soya!'


Protein Pow All Purpose Pea Protein Cooking Mix

'Great alternative to protein shakes – would be easy to transport to the gym or work. Good concept and convenient – perfect for those who are really into wholesome foods.'

The Pastry Room Gluten Free Scone Mix

'Free from lots of allergens and the scones didn’t appear to crumble – excellent product for catering/food service. Good flavour and nice texture especially when served warm.'
