Fife-based farmer, butcher and bacon curer, Puddledub, has won a prestigious Silver medal for their hand-linked gluten-free sausages at The Free From Food Awards 2021. Based in Auchtertool, Puddledub is renowned for its farm to fork approach, creating their award-winning hand-linked sausages and dry-cured bacon using traditional methods on their Fife farm.
The 2021 Free From Awards were presented virtually for the second year in a row celebrating the very best in free from food featuring artisan producers as well as national supermarkets and everything in between. As the UK’s only award for free from food and drink, the awards are seen as a benchmark in the business as all producers big and small compete on a level playing field.
Tom Mitchell, farmer and director at Puddldub said ‘Being recognised amongst the best food and drink producers in the UK is a real honour. We feel that gluten-free options deserve more than just a substandard product, they deserve the same care and attention to flavour as any other product. We use the same quality homegrown high welfare pork and hand linking process to create our range of gluten-free sausages as we do for our traditional sausages, just minus the gluten. Our gluten-free honey and mustard sausages are a firm favourite with all our customers and not just those that don’t eat gluten.’
Puddledub’s gluten-free honey and mustard pork sausages competed in the Artisan producer category and are just one of the gluten-free products in the Puddledub range.
