With about four million Australians living with an allergic disease, the demand for an event catering to food allergies has never been stronger.

It’s also true for the growing number of people who are cutting out meat, dairy and eggs (intolerance plus the cruelty factor), and gluten, peanut, tree nut, parabens, fructose, sugar, soy and GMO.

On July 12 – 14, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will host The Allergy Show and Free From Show. These events are designed to empower and educate those avoiding foods, allergens or substances – whether through choice or necessity.

 

You can WIN with Star Weekly’s Allergy Show and Free From Show competition.

Fill out the competition form here to enter the draw to win a gluten-free food pack kindly donated by show exhibitor, Schar, and double passes to the show this weekend.
