A variety of Herr’s products to be showcased in SnackSafely.com’s Safe Snack Guide
NOTTINGHAM, PA (PRWEB) OCTOBER 15, 2015
SnackSafely.com, a leading website and publisher dedicated to educating families with food allergies, welcomes Herr® Foods to its Manufacturer Partnership. As a partner, the leading snack brand will be featured in the publisher’s Safe Snack Guide™, a catalogue of foods free of peanuts, tree nuts and eggs designed to help keep these allergens out of the classroom and the home. The Guide is a trusted resource for thousands of schools and tens of thousands of parents nationwide.
Headquartered in Nottingham, Pa., Herr’s manufactures an extensive line of savory snacks including potato chips, pretzels, popcorn and cheese curls. The family owned and operated company began 67 years ago in Lancaster, Pa., and now employs more than 1,500 people who make 340 delicious snack products that are available worldwide.
“The rise in food allergies is making it increasingly difficult for families to find foods they can safely enjoy together,” says Bob Clark, Vice President of Marketing at Herr Foods Inc. “Our relationship with SnackSafely.com allows us to distribute more comprehensive allergen information so that consumers with allergy concerns can make better informed decisions about our products.”
Dave Bloom, CEO of SnackSafely.com says, “We’re pleased to welcome Herr’s to our growing partnership of over 50 companies. Our partners support the food allergy community by providing much more detailed information regarding the potential for allergen exposure than is required by the FDA.
“My family has been snacking with Herr’s as long as I can remember,” continued Bloom. “We look forward to helping the brand reach millions of families searching for products compatible with their specific food allergy restrictions.”
A selection of Herr’s snacks is now listed in the Safe Snack Guide as well as Allergence, SnackSafely.com’s interactive allergen screening service. For more information, visit snacksafely.com/safe-snack-guide, allergence.com and www.Herrs.com
SnackSafely.com has developed a proprietary platform featuring a portal for partner manufacturers to specify how 11 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, sesame, mustard and gluten) are processed during the manufacture of each product. In return, qualifying products earn listings in the Safe Snack Guide and Allergence.
Joining the partnership is absolutely free as are listings in the Safe Snack Guide and Allergence. Manufacturers employing responsible practices are encouraged to inquire at snacksafely.com/contact-us.
