Innovative FreeFrom Awards winners 2017

Booja-Booja won one Gold and two Silver awards at the 2017 FreeFrom Food Awards. Booja-Booja Almond & Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Truffles from the innovative chilled chocolate range won joint Gold in the Confectionery and Chocolate category 2017. We were delighted to hear the judges lovely comment about this multi award-winning melt-in the-mouth chewy, gooey seal salted caramel and roasted almond chocolate truffle, ‘Really delicious creamy almondly flavour. Rich after taste, properly indulgent! Wonderful flavour combinations yet a really clean ingredients list. Love the light chocolate dusting.’

Silver awards were won by two Booja-Booja Dairy Free Ice cream flavours.

Booja-Booja Raspberry Ripple Dairy Free Ice Cream won Silver in the Puddings & Desserts Category, with judges saying, ‘Lovely looking ice cream with a great ripple. Deliciously sweet and creamy – brilliantly clean label.’ We love how the vibrant raspberry ripple cuts through our creamy vanilla ice cream to make this beautifully refreshing dairy free ice cream and were really pleased that the judges thought so too!

The FreeFrom Awards Innovation Category saw Booja-Booja Caramel Pecan Praline Dairy Free Ice Cream win Silver. This innovative vanilla-based dairy free ice cream shmoozled with salted caramel pecan praline sauce is indulgent in both taste and texture and an absolute joy for your tastebuds. Judges said: ‘Nice, clever product – great ingredients.’ ‘Gorgeous flavour – l love the fact that it doesn’t have dairy, soya or eggs – brilliant.’

The FreeFrom Awards celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2017, and looked back over a decade that has seen the industry grow at an exponential rate from being a tiny cottage industry to being a multi-million pound food sector, championed by household names and celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Novak Djokovic and Gwyneth Paltrow. Now, with 19 categories of fabulous food and drink, a FreeFrom Food Award sets the standard for excellence and raising awareness in the wider world and is now the ultimate accolade for the hundreds of companies, big and small, creating and selling freefrom food.
