Tesco

'For the second year running the Tesco development team have excelled in terms of innovation and quality, especially in frozen products.

Not only were they creating much loved but long lost gluten-free products such as garlic breads and dough balls, breaded scampi, profiteroles and Cornetto look-alikes but the majority of these products were also dairy/milk free and many of them were also soya and egg free.

Although small producers and independent brands play an incredibly important role in freefrom, the supermarkets remain the power house of the sector so it is hugely important that they engage with it – as Tesco most certainly do.'
