Tesco were far out ahead this year in terms of innovation and quality in freefrom with four winning products and a very creditable clutch of commendeds and highly commendeds.

The supermarkets still play a major role in the average family shop so a vibrant freefrom supermarket sector is really important for families who either need or choose to eat 'freefrom'.

The Tesco development team have seriously pushed the boundaries with innovatory products such as their party packs, their fish, meat and veggie burgers and their desserts. Many of these have also gone beyond gluten free to be dairy, egg, nut or soya free as well – yet it would be hard to tell that any of them were not 'normal' products.'
