Two Oumph! products shortlisted in FreeFrom Food Awards

Wohoo! We’re excited to announce that Oumph! has been shortlisted for two products in two different categories in the FreeFrom Food Awards 2018 in the UK.

Pulled Oumph! and The Chunk are shortlisted in the Innovations category, and Pulled Oumph! is also shortlisted in the Veggie Ready Meals category.

“Oumph! is exactly the sort of product that our judges love”, says FreeFrom Food Awards director Michelle Berriedale-Johnson.

The FreeFrom Food Awards, the UK’s only industry award for the rapidly growing ‘freefrom’ food market, celebrate excellence and seek out innovation in gluten, milk, soya, nut and other allergen free food.

“We are super thrilled that Oumph! is shortlisted in the FreeFrom Food Awards”, says Henrik Åkerman, Marketing Director at Food for Progress.

“We don’t focus on Oumph! as a ‘meat replacement’, we just see it as really good food, and it just happens to be vegan and free from gluten and dairy. We use our own spices in the different Oumph! products, and we also make a plain Oumph! that you can add any spices or herbs to yourself.”

Åkerman continues:

“Since the launch of Oumph! in Sweden back in 2014 we have had a growth of more than 500% and as we now enter the UK market we see an incredible potential to continue that growth.”
