The prestigious awards were presented by Antony Worrall Thompson at a presentation party yesterday (May 12th) (during Allergy Week) at Burgh House in North London. Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, Foods Matter editor and chair of the judges, commented on the results: "We were delighted that the Healthy Cake Company had gone the extra mile to make the cake dairy free as well as gluten free. "There is currently a trend amongst manufacturers of gluten-free products to add small amounts of dairy to previously gluten and dairy-free products, which is enormously frustrating for the many people who are intolerant of both. That the cake was also organic was just an extra bonus." The 2009 award were sponsored by Livwell ( - Livwell are part of the Finsbury Food Group and are the largest supplier to the UK free-from retail market.

The FreeFrom Food sector has grown massively over the last few years. Turnover has doubled in three years growing from £90 million in 2006 to an estimated £195 million by 2010 and £350 million by 2012.
