GUITTARD CHOCOLATE COMPANY NOW CERTIFIED TREE NUT FREE
151 Year Old Company Continues to Strive for Top Quality and Innovation through Allergen-friendly Facilities and Product Offerings
Burlingame, CA (June 11, 2019) — Guittard Chocolate, the family company that has expertly crafted chocolate in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1868, is proud to announce that its manufacturing facility is now tree nut free. Throughout its 151 year history, Guittard Chocolate has worked to represent quality and innovation at every level of its production and product line. Guittard’s tree nut free certification joins the company’s existing Cultivate Better commitments including non-GMO, peanut free, gluten free, sunflower lecithin and Fair Trade CertifiedTM with the goal of bringing thoughtfully sourced and allergen-friendly products to customers.
The tree nut free claim applies to Guittard Chocolate products produced after July 31, 2018. All Guittard Chocolate consumer products are now tree nut free, including the entire line of baking chips, organic baking wafers, baking bars and cocoa powders.
“At Guittard, we’re constantly striving to produce the best quality chocolate. This touches every level of what we do--from partnering with cacao farmers at origin to pushing innovation at our manufacturing facility to celebrating our chef and retail customers,” says Gary Guittard. “Being tree nut free represents our ongoing commitment to improving our product by making it as allergen-friendly as possible.”
