We are delighted to have picked up two prestigious Good Choice! Quality Food Awards and a high commendation against tough competition from both large and small food producers.
Hodmedod's unique Yellow Pea Flour was judged winner of the Home Baking and Added Ingredients - Healthier and Free From – Flour category. Our Roasted Green Peas with Horseradish won the Snacks - Bagged Savoury category, beating our Lightly Salted Roasted Fava Beans, which were highly commended.
The awards, presented by chef and food writer Rachel Allen, are recognition that our innovative use of British-grown peas and beans to make versatile flours and moreish snacks allows us to produce foods of the highest quality and with clear UK provenance.
The Good Choice! Quality Food Awards highlight best practice in food products that are specifically designed and marketed as healthier, free from or alternative diet. They are part of the Quality Food Awards which rewards finest food and drink products on sale in UK supermarkets and elsewhere.
Helen Lyons, Publishing Director at Metropolitan Business Publishing, which runs the awards, said, “Our Good Choice! winners are some of the most innovative manufacturers in the country. All of them have worked hard to create a range of healthier, but still delicious products. Now in our third year we are proud to help promote and recognise the huge efforts being made by retailers and manufacturers to address the need for low fat, low sugar, dairy free and reduced calorie alternatives.”

A few years ago we were looking for a sweetner for some granola recipes, something UK produced and minimally processed. When our apple syrup order from Liberty Fields arrived we knew we were onto something special - we quickly added them to our short list of brilliant Guest Producers
We've launched ten pulses and grains from British farms as part of Holland & Barrett's transformation of their food range, available in their stores across the UK. It's a fantastic opportunity to make British-grown fava beans, carlin peas and quinoa, along with other pulses and cereals, available more widely and to support more diverse farming.
Down a warren of country lanes, not far from the Tamar Valley in Cornwall, is Julie Bailey's orchard Lower Trelabe, where she grows historic local varieties of apple and makes her delicious Apple Natural apple shreds, traditional fruit leathers that contain only the natural plant sugars.
