According to Honey Acres, an estimated 32 million Americans suffer from a food allergy. 90% of these food allergies can be attributed to the FDA’s “Big Nine” allergens–milk, tree nuts, eggs, peanuts, fish, wheat, shellfish, soybeans, and sesame.
With its latest release, Honey Acres is hoping to build trust with their customers by sharing the processes they use to keep their products free of the Big Nine allergens.
Internally, Honey Acres follows good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and SQF allergen and gluten control procedures. These involve preventing allergen and gluten cross-contamination, regularly training employees about cross-contamination, and quarantining received shipments for inspection prior to release into the facility.
Externally, Honey Acres employs a rigorous supplier approval program. With this program, vendors are required to provide detailed information about their facilities, allergen and gluten control policies, and GMPs. Moreover, their shipments must come with product documentation and a Certificate of Analysis (CoA).
In addition, Honey Acres complies with all FDA standards regarding transparent labeling standards. Their products are also certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) and certified Kosher Pareve by Quality Kosher Supervision.
“Our honey-based products make life so sweet, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy them,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Every step of our production process includes the most rigorous standards to ensure high-quality, safe products. We do it because we care about every one of our customers as if they were our own family.”
