Surrey-based Tom Pom Organic was launched in late 2020 by Kari Sherman after struggling to find suitable food for her second son Tommy, nicknamed Tom Pom. At nine months old, Tommy was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, particularly to nuts and dairy.

Tom Pom Organic offers artisan purees and frozen ring meals, to be enjoyed frozen as a teething ring or thawed as a meal or snack. They are healthy, nutritious, antiallergic and minimally processed.
Sherman explained, “Preparing your family meals with fresh ingredients provides the best nutritional option at mealtime. Tom Pom Organic is handcrafted in small batches and we use the same simple processes you do at home. So when parents don’t. have time to prepare their baby’s meals, Tom Pom Organic is here – delivering fun, fresh frozen meal rings. “
Tom Pom Organic was previously shortlisted at Food Matters Live in 2018 for Best New Food Product, even before Sherman launched the Tom Pom trial line.
