Allergen Safety Info

Your safety is our priority

To help protect against accidental allergen contamination in our production facilities, we hold ourselves and our suppliers to rigorous standards of safety and consistency. In addition, our on-pack allergen declarations go beyond typical industry practices.  See a summary of our approach below but, just to be on the safe side, if you have allergies please consult your physician before trying this or any new foods.

People

We know that technological controls and cleanup protocols are only as strong as the individuals responsible for using them. That’s why ongoing allergen safety training is mandatory for every employee who works on our production lines.

Plants

Because every production facility is unique, we don’t settle for “one-size-fits-all” safety procedures. Each of our plants is equipped with customized technology tailored to its specific allergen scenario. 

Ingredients

Our commitment to safety extends throughout our entire supply chain. We carefully research and monitor all of our ingredient suppliers to ensure that their allergen safety procedures are aligned to our high standards.

Controls

All of our facilities, and those of our suppliers and manufacturing partners, are independently verified to ensure consistent compliance with allergen safety standards. We also perform regular finished product tests in every plant. Consistent batch-testing helps to ensure that our safety controls have functioned as intended, and guards against the risk of accidental contamination.
