About Us

The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are being launched by the FoodsMatter team who have, for the last eight years, run the hugely successful FreeFrom Food Awards, which have made a major contribution to the massive growth in freefrom food in the retail section. Now, with regulations governing the declaration of allergens coming into force in food service at the end of 2014, they are bringing their expertise to bear on 'freefrom' in restaurants, cafés, pubs, take-aways, canteens, schools, hospitals and anywhere outside the home that you might wish to eat freefrom food.

Like the FreeFrom Food Awards, the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards will encourage innovation and celebrate excellence in the freefrom food service industry. The awards are entirely independent, supported by sponsorship and entry fees only.

The FoodsMatter family of sites cover a wide range of subjects related to food allergy and intolerance and their many related health conditions, including coeliac disease and gluten-related disorders, skin allergies, free from food, free from supplements and superfoods, raw food and free from recipes.

Michelle has been involved with food sensitivity for nearly 30 years, ever since her baby son and his father were both diagnosed with milk intolerance. Since then she has manufactured 'freefrom' food, run a magazine about food sensitivity for both health professionals and patients, written a number of books on food allergy/intolerance, devised over 1,000 'freefrom' recipes and started the hugely successful FreeFrom Food Awards – as well as editing the FoodsMatter family of websites and writing the FoodsMatter blog.
