Gold award for Oumph! Thyme & Garlic and Bronze for the Oumph! Pizza in FreeFrom Food Awards

Plant-based Oumph! Thyme & Garlic won Gold in the Store Cupboard category at the FreeFrom Food Awards. The Oumph! Pizza Italian Style was awarded Bronze in the Pizza & Pasta category. The awards were presented on Wednesday at the ceremony at Royal Colleague of Physicians in London.

“Oumph! really is the most extraordinary product. Not only would it be really easy to mistake its texture for chicken, but it absorbs flavours – such the winning Oumph! Thyme & Garlic – so well. And of course from a ‘freefrom’ perspective, it is brilliant – free of 13 of the top 14 major allergens”, says Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, Director, FreeFrom Awards.

Charlotte Reynolds, UK Market Manager for Oumph! and Food for Progress attended the award ceremony. She comments:

“The FreeFrom Awards is an amazing event showcasing some truly innovate food products, created by talented passionate people. We are proud that Oumph! is recognised by the judges. The entry standards are very high, so being awarded Gold proves what we know to be true – that Oumph! is really good, tasty food that just happens to be freefrom”.

Earlier this week Pulled Oumph! won first prize in no less than three categories in the prestigious World Food Innovation Awards

• Best Plant-Based Product

• Best Street Food Brand

• Best Foodservice/Catering Product.
