The Bulletin BFFF GALA DINNER & ANNUAL AWARDS 2017
A stunning win for Crown Foods in this competitive category, with a gold for its MSC Gluten Free Bubble Coated Salmon. This lovely product cooks from frozen in 20 minutes. Our judges thought it was absolutely delightful and stated, “Fantastic sized salmon that fills the crumb well, crumb crispy – fish flakes well,” whilst another said, “Excellent crumb casing. Plump salmon fillet, still moist and flavoursome.” Silver was awarded to the Proper Pies Chicken Leek & Crème Fraiche Pie with a Ham Ciabatta Crumb by Oliver James Foods.
The bronze prize was won by Panang Chicken Curry by Brakes.
