We were delighted to be one of many free from companies that participated in the first ever Free From Christmas Awards this year. We were even more delighted to go home with an amazing Silver Award win in the Christmas Dinner category for our popular vegan, gluten free Family Nut Roast.
Judges said, ‘You wouldn’t even have to be vegetarian to enjoy this’, commending Clive’s signature crunchy polenta crust, texture and festive seed and nut decoration atop the roast.
Esther Pearson, our Chief Plant Pioneer said, ‘It’s like Christmas has come early for us at the Clive’s Bakery. Getting such positive recognition from coveted awards like Free From, is a huge motivator for myself and our exceptional team. It makes us so happy to know our Family Nut Roast will be taking centre stage at many a plant-based Christmas dinner this year, and hope it brings that extra special touch to the big day.”

Tesco, long standing previous winners of the main Free From Food Awards’ Retailer of the Year crown, took the coveted Christmas Retailer of the Year prize for “the breadth of their Christmas offer, their free from credentials, and overall quality”.
Clive’s beat off stiff competition as the awards saw twice as many entrants as expected. Free From Awards’ CEO, Cressida Langlands said, ‘There were nerves when we decided to launch these spin-off Awards in the middle of summer, but they’ve been so successful and popular that we’ll definitely welcome them back in 2022!’
