Saturday 26th April saw a bunch of enthusiastic NFF’ers head over to Castle Gate in Newcastle for the annual Gluten-Free Fair. The event had well over 1000 people through the doors and had stands from local gluten-free manufacturers with everything from honey to curry!
“We wanted to come here and support Coeliac UK today because of the great work they do pioneering awareness for coeliacs and making their lives easier by navigating the world of GF products” said David Wood Commercial Director for Northumbrian Fine Foods proudly handing over £150 raised on the stand to Coeliac NorthEast.
Always keen for new ideas and an opportunity to get the public involved, the NFF team ran a competition to design a new gluten-free cookie. After a busy day on the stand and fierce competition from lots of great drawings, the competition for the best new gluten-free cookie was won by Hannah from Gateshead, with ‘Monkey Munch’. To say congratulations the team at Prewett’s will bake her personal design and send it to her to munch!
