That’s 15 million people and growing, doubling roughly every 10 years. That’s 1 in 12 American children and an estimated 1 in 20 American adults with a food allergy. Approximately 25% will have a near-fatal anaphylactic reaction. There is a visit to the emergency room due to a food allergy-induced anaphylactic reaction every two minutes.
This is a problem that impacts everyone: family, friends, neighbors, teachers, students, young children, teens, etc.
We follow 16 proprietary measures to ensure our products are safe and of the highest quality. We rigorously audit and continuously monitor our partners to maintain a high-quality supply chain.
Extensive technical information is required on every raw material and ingredient used in our products. We audit and then validate the manufacturing and production facilities of our products and ingredients by location. Our manufacturing plants are dedicated peanut-free and tree-nut-free, and all the ingredients we purchase are also from peanut-free and tree-nut-free facilities. Each and every food production lot is tested for: peanut, almond, hazelnut, walnut, cashew, pistachio, macadamia, Brazil, coconut and pecan. Other food allergens like milk, egg, wheat, soy, shellfish and fish are tracked and isolated in our facilities. These allergens are clearly noted on packaging if they are used in our products or processed in our facilities.
Our policies have been validated by the leading independent food allergy laboratory in the United States.
We have and will continue to develop products that help people avoid all food allergens, including peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish and fish. Whatever food allergens we take on, rest assured you can count on our protocols to ensure safety. We will publish these protocols here and in our Frequently Asked Questions.
Our products will always be clearly labeled, so whoever is doing the shopping can make informed choices—for the sake of your own family, that of a neighbor or friend, or simply to create a more inclusive community for all.
