The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards were launched to raise awareness of the huge opportunities offered by 'freefrom' food within the food service sector now that the new allergen regulations affecting food service have come into force.

The awards have their own Twitter account – FFEatingOutAwds – and their own Facebook page. Please follow and like both and, if you would care to tweet, please use #FFEOA16.

logologoThe 'FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are run by the same team as the hugely successful FreeFrom Food Awards (now in their ninth year) and the FreeFrom Skincare Awards (now in their fifth year).
All the awards use teams of independent judges to assess the entries – and round winners' logos are a widely recognised mark of excellence amongst allergic, coeliac and 'freefrom' consumers.

If you have any queries or would like to talk to us about the project, please email Michelle or call on (44) 020 7722 2866.
