Sponsorship 2018



The fourth year of the awards, 2017, saw a major step forward in terms of recognition and awareness both of 'freefrom' in food service and of the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards.

The presentation in November in the conference theatre at Food Matters Live (see the short video on the winners page) was extremely well attended and saw the launch of our new FreeFrom Eating Out Awards Google map.

We believe that the map, which shows all gold, silver and bronze winners for the last three years, with details of the sponsors for each category, will be a real game changer for the awards.
