A bit about the speakers

Christine Colbert not only owns and runs award-winning, House, the go-to marketing agency for freefrom, health and wellbeing brands, she has also walked in your shoes, talked your language and understands your challenges.

Christine will share her own woeful journey of launching a freefrom brand from her own kitchen on to the supermarket shelves back in the early noughties. The road was tough, the market new, the category empty and the journey challenging. She had secured the funding, built her own manufacturing, had the marketing story and branding nailed and got the supermarket listings, but it catastrophically failed.

Lisa Tomlinson, a highly experienced consumer brand planner will delve deep into who exactly our freefrom audience is. From the all-important growth stats and figures of this market to the latest knowledge on who is ‘choosing’ to buy freefrom and why, Lisa will tell you where and how to find your audience and, moreover, what connects them. From attitudes and behaviours, to what tools and knowledge we can use to find and reach them effectively, Lisa holds the insight golden nuggets.

Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, Director of FreeFrom Food Awards, editor of the Food Matters publications and industry go-to contact for product knowledge and standards, is an inspiration to the sector.

Michelle has manufactured her own freefrom food like Christine, ran a magazine for health professionals and patients, written books on food intolerance and allergy, created over 1000 freefrom recipes and now edits the Freefrom matters family of websites.

Promising 30 minutes of authoritative direction and information, Michelle will talk you through the seven key steps to becoming an award-winning freefrom brand, from quality, cost and everything in between.
