Dufflet Gluten Free is one of 10 finalists for the prestigious Innovation award - this is the process for judging;

Step 1: All participating products are carefully analyzed by an independent selection committee. Products showing innovative characteristics will be labelled “SIAL Innovation Selection.”

Step 2: Selected products are then presented to a jury of independent experts. This jury determines the 10 “SIAL Innovation Award” according to 4 criteria: market positioning, fabrication process, the recipe and packaging.

Step 3: Then the same jury selects amongst the 10 award winners the one who deserves the “SIAL Innovation Grand Award.”
