Healthy Food and Drink Award 2014
With an extensive list of possible categories to enter (some with a lot less competition than others), we entered into the ‘Best Sweet Snack’ category.

Despite this stiff competition, we won the bronze award, finishing above two different ‘Nairn’s’ entries and ‘Divinio’ who supplied the Nike VIP House at the London Olympics. This was voted by the public.
