Hodgins Gluten Free Sausage won Gold at the Free From Awards on May 10th, 2019. Silver medals were also awarded for Hodgins Gluten Free Black and White Pudding. The Free From Awards is a prestigious Gluten Free Awards gala presentation night.
The winners at the gluten free awards were selected by a panel of experts who carried out a blind tasting using the criteria of appearance, aroma, texture and taste.
Accepting these awards, Mervin Hodgins commented, “We were absolutely delighted to win the Gold award for our gluten free sausages, and Silver for both our Black and White Pudding products” Mervin said. “For us, it’s all about quality and excellence and it’s fantastic for us and our dedicated staff to be recognised in this way.”. The #Hodginsnothingtohide handle sums it all up – there’s nothing nasty lurking in the Hodgins range, which is 100% Irish pork, sourced only from Irish farmers, and containing no MSG. “Only the very best of ingredients go into our sausages and puddings”
Mervin finished by highlighting, “it’s all about taste with consumers, particularly the younger generation who typically love sausages and should not feel deprived because they are coeliac or gluten intolerant. “We are constantly researching and testing our products to deliver the best taste without gluten. These are always a winner with children and we know how tough it can be to bring up children on a gluten free diet.”
The Hodgins range can be found in Tesco, SuperValu, Dunnes Stores , Iceland and independent stores across Ireland.
