CHELSEA, MA, November 17, 2015 (Newswire) – SnackSafely.com, publishers of the Safe Snack Guide – a curated catalog of peanut and tree nut-free foods used by thousands of schools nationwide – is pleased to welcome JSB Industries to its growing partnership of manufacturers.
Muffin Town, the brand founded by JSB in 1978, specializes in the supply of high quality baked products to foodservice & retail companies. Their individually wrapped, SunWise SunButter and Jelly Sandwich is manufactured in a peanut and tree nut-free facility and as such is an exceptional option for people sensitive to these allergens.
“Families coping with food allergies often have difficulties finding foods that are safe to eat, especially in public settings,” says Jack Anderson, President and CEO of JSB Industries. “Our products provide safe, delicious options for families avoiding peanuts and tree nuts, at home and when they’re on the go.
“SnackSafely.com’s deep roots in food allergy and school advocacy make them the ideal partner to help us reach out to those families. We’re proud to be featured in their publications.”
“We welcome JSB Industries to our growing partnership of over 50 responsible manufacturers,” says Dave Bloom, CEO of SnackSafely.com. “They’ve committed to providing more complete information regarding the potential for allergen exposure than the FDA requires, and in doing so embrace the needs of those with severe food allergies.”
Joining the partnership is absolutely free as are listings in the Safe Snack Guide and Allergence, the free allergen screening service. Manufacturers employing responsible practices are encouraged to inquire at snacksafely.com/contact-us or call (347) 915-4777.
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, their interactive product screening service available at allergence.com.
