Harper Adams team wins gold for cereal bar

The Gastronomies team from Harper Adams University has won gold at Ecotrophelia UK 2014 for its oat and blueberry cereal bar.

The Beri Bar includes raspberry spheres, topped with a dark chocolate drizzle. The team has won a £2,000 cash prize as well an invite to become IFST Young Ambassadors and has received a one-year IFST membership and a number of Elsevier food science publications.

The UK heat was organised by food and drink organisation Campden BRI in conjunction with the Institute of Food Science & Technology. The competition challenges young people pursuing a career in the food industry to design an eco-friendly, innovative food or beverage product with commercial potential.

Cardiff Metropolitan University won silver and £1,000 for its Cwtch Circles – biscuits with a sweet apple centre covered in milk chocolate. The bronze and £500 was awarded to the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise team for Pot Delights – a ready-to-eat savoury snack made with chicken marinated in chilli, coriander and lime, served with mango chutney.

Emma Garlick, a member of the Harper Adams team, who is studying Food, Nutrition and Wellbeing, said: “We are delighted to have won Ecotrophelia. All our hard work has paid off. We are now looking forward to the European finals in October.”
