Dedicated Allergen Free Food Manufacturers Get Support, One Box at a Time

LENEXA, KS - March 7, 2016 - gr8box, Inc. today announced the launch of its monthly subscription box service introducing its subscribers to foods free of the Top 8 Allergens (milk, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish) which account for 90% of all food allergic reactions. All products are produced in dedicated Top 8 Allergen Free facilities to give consumers added peace of mind.

The gluten free and “free from” markets are expected to reach $23.9 billion by 2020 (Statista) and are growing rapidly. While brands resist dedicated allergen free manufacturing facilities due to increased costs, many implement practices such as washing equipment in-between production runs and testing for allergen safety compliance. Brands often distance themselves from this community, however, when the presence of an allergen is in the facility at all.

“Allergen free consumers want food in their hands and peace in their minds,” said gr8boxTM Founder and CEO Terri Jordan. gr8box works solely with products produced in dedicated Top 8 Allergen Free facilities and has partnered with organizations that help manufacturers become more allergen friendly.

“We’re building great relationships with manufacturers and are working together to bring the allergen free customer exactly what they want and will buy,” said Jordan. “These manufacturers need the recognition and support of the allergen free community to ensure continued growth and development of new products.”

Food allergies and intolerances affect 75 million people across the United States (Business Wire).
