Food Matters Live 2018

If the options for a free-from meal on-the-go might be a packet of plain gluten-free biscuits or a frozen ready meal, what are the routes that free-from should be pursuing? From a consumer perspective, which is better in terms of nutrition and safety? From a retailer perspective, what’s going to sell successfully?
