Coeliac UK app wins leadership award
28 Jun 2019by Joe Lepper
An app that supports people with Coeliac to shop for gluten free food has received an award from a professional leaders group.
Coeliac UK, the charity for those who need to live gluten free due to coelic disease or other medical conditions, has won the 2019 'best use of an app' category in the Memcom awards, which is for leaders in professional and membership associations.
The Gluten Free Food Checker app has been produced by the charity in conjunction with food tech company FoodMaestro enabling people to search for thousands of food products that are gluton free.
The app also allows users to include different dietary preferences and lists all products that carry the Coeliac UK Crossed Grain symbol, which is internationally recognised by those who need to follow a gluten free diet.
Half a million undiagnosed
One in hundred people in the UK has Coeliac disease but Coeliac UK estimates that around half a million people nationally are currently undiagnosed. It still takes around 13 years on average for a person to be diagnosed.
Hilary Croft, Coeliac UK Chief Executive Officer said: “Making life easier for those living gluten free is at the heart of what we do and it is wonderful to have one of our flagship services recognised with a MemCom award, which acknowledges the emphasis on user journey and our continued improvements to deliver more functionality and tailored content for a better user experience.”
