Dublin-based bakery BFree has been awarded three top accolades at the 10th anniversary FreeFrom Food Awards for its Sweet Potato Wraps and Stone Baked Pitta Bread.
The bakery scooped the Product of the Year award, claimed the Gold title in the Innovation category for its Sweet Potato Wraps and won the Gold accolade in the Bread category for its Stone Baked Pitta Bread.
Judges praised the wrap not only for being “enormously versatile, beautifully soft and pliable, a lovely warm colour and tasting delicious”, but for being free of all major allergens.
“The whole company is in disbelief. We can’t believe it and we are so over the moon,” Freya Ivory, senior brand manager for BFree told British Baker. “We entered several categories, and it’s such a great win for the team.”
Ivory collected her accolades from guest host Antony Worrall Thompson and awards director, Michelle Berriedale-Johnson.
Other winners from the baking industry included West Cornwall Pasty Co, which came runner-up for its Gluten and Dairy Free Traditional ‘Everyday’ Pasty; while Rana’s Artisan Bakery scooped the Gold award in the Best Product from a Start Up category for its Italian Sourdough Bread mix.
BFree’s Sweet Potato Wraps are available at retailers such as Tesco and Asda.
