David Abbott, Booja-Booja Managing Director said: “We’re absolutely delighted that our vegan chocolates truffles are recognised by the Academy as being up there with the very best. Booja-Booja has successfully competed on taste with the leading confectionery and ice cream manufacturers since our inception in 1999, winning more than 100 awards to date. We pride ourselves on using minimal, simple organic ingredients to make our exquisite chocolate truffles, sourced from long-standing business partners around the globe. Our organic recipes are free from dairy, wheat, gluten, soya, additives, preservatives, palm oil, eggs, stabilisers, emulsifiers and acidity regulators, and as this award confirms, taste exceptional. We have just launched two delicious new flavours of chocolate truffle, Honeycomb Caramel and Toffee Strudel which can be found in the chiller cabinet of good independent health food stores.”
