Shortlisted in the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards!

Posted on 15/10/2015

We’re excited to announce we’ve been shortlisted in the 2015 FreeFrom Eating Out Awards!

Our recently launched 15mm Supercrunch Fries - suitable for gluten-free diets - have made it to the final stage in the 'Foods Manufactured for Foodservice' category. Boasting an innovative coating that means consumers enjoy a crispier, cruncy texture, Aviko's Supercrunch range holds heat for up to 15 minutes meaning it's suitable for operators who are under pressure to prepare food in a limited time. It also has has a long self-life of up to 18 months which is a major bonus for caterers looking to minimise food wastage and boost profits.

Mohammed Essa, General Manager UK and Ireland, Aviko, says: "We're thrilled to have been shortlisted in the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, particularly as we're being recognised for our gluten-free credentials. Recent independent research has shown that a massive 70% of people opt for chips as their preferred gluten-free side out-of-home* so it's important for us, and for operators, to meet this demand. Caterers can be safe in the knowledge that our Premium Fries range, including Supercrunch, is produced in a dedicated gluten-free factory - something not all potato product suppliers can guarantee. We're looking forward to the awards presentation in November!"

Winners will be announced by awards patron Antony Worrall Thompson on Tuesday 17th November 2015 during a presentation at Food Matters Live, ExCel London.
