FreeFrom Awards open to fish and chip shops



A new category has been added to this year’s FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, enabling fish and chip shops to enter. 


The awards, which were launched last year and were inspired by the new EU allergen regulations, require fish and chip shops to have a minimum of one gluten-free day per week and tests staff on their knowledge and understanding of the 14 key allergens as well as how they communicate this information to customers.  

After an initial paper entry round, a shortlist of chippies will be drawn up and visited incognito by judges who will asses the quality of their food and ensure that the protocols described in the entry form are being put into practice.  Judges for the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards include allergy sufferers, coeliacs and food professionals who work with freefrom food and those who choose to eat it. 

Entry closes on Friday 28th August and the winner will be presented with their award by patron Antony Worrall Thompson at Food Matters Live Event on 17th November 2015 at Excel in London. 

The FreeFrom Eating Out Awards are a spin-off from the FreeFrom Food Awards, which are now in their ninth year and aim to encourage innovation and celebrate excellence in the freefrom food industry.
