Let Me Introduce You to Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, For Many a Guiding Light in the Free From World
Let me Introduce you to Michelle Berriedale-Johnson who for me and many others has been our guiding light on all things ‘free from’.
- Michelle became interested in dairy free cooking when both her partner and son had dairy intolerances
- She set up a very early ‘free from' business in the late 80s making dairy free ice cream and meals.
- She created a newsletter for health professionals, then for people with intolerance themselves,
- Next she launched a magazine, a lot of the information from this and a subsequent website is now available HERE
- She created what are now the Free From Awards
Michelle struggled to think of a time when she has stepped outside her comfort zone, not a surprise to me as she is incredibly confident and happy to ‘ have a go’ at lots of things.
There is no doubt that she has been pivotal in encouraging many of the producers and manufacturers of free from products in the UK today – to have a go themselves or to constantly strive to improve products they make.
