We won the FreeFrom Product Range of the Year for the third year running!

Tuesday 14th May, 2019

We took home the gold at the 2019 FreeFrom Awards, scooping up the three main category awards at the annual event held on Friday, 10th May. For the third year running, we were crowned the coveted title as the retailer with Product Range of the Year. We also added to this top accolade by achieving the awards for Innovation of the Year, for our Tesco Free From Soft Cheese and Product of the Year, for our Free From Ice Cream Chocolate Sticks. The esteemed titles were awarded in recognition of our ongoing commitment to innovation, availability of specialised foods and for offering the most comprehensive range of products for suffers of Coeliac disease in Ireland.

Along with the three main category wins of Product Range of the Year, Innovation of the Year and Product of the Year, we also took home 34 individual product awards, exhibiting success across all categories listed, with 7 Gold, 9 Silver, 11 Bronze and 7 Merit product awards.

Commenting on this success, Joe Manning, commercial director, Tesco Ireland said, “We’re delighted to have retained our Product Range of the Year title for the third year running and to be adding to this accolade with awards for Innovation of the Year and overall Product of the Year.”

“Innovation is a key focus in everything we do, and our teams are very passionate about continuing to develop our offering with the best range of FreeFrom products in the Irish market. The FreeFrom awards are a true testament to this commitment and to Tesco’s mission to serve our customers a little better every day.”
