As a mother of two school-aged children, I know that having access to nut-free dessert is of paramount importance.
Not only are most schools in NYC nut-free, but i have many friends whose kids are afflicted by nut allergies as well as loyal customers who have told me that having access to nut-free treats is extremely important to them. As both a mom and a businesswoman who cares deeply about her family, friends, community and customers, it was imperative to me that i take the steps to make sure that my business was doing its part to provide baked goods that could be enjoyed by all.
We are delighted to announce that all of Eleni's products are made in our own peanut-and tree nut-free dedicated facility. In addition, we use only the highest quality ingredients, and employ the most stringent testing, production and packing methods.
Our policies for maintaining a nut-free environment at our bakery include allergen-free statements from all our ingredient vendors as well as a "No Nuts Allowed" policy in our facility for employees and visitors.
To further ensure our nut-free policy, we use environmental testing swabs to randomly and frequently test our bakery and both retail stores for the presence of peanuts and tree nuts. The swabs use highly specific antibodies to detect allergic proteins from nuts.
Should you wish to learn more about our process, please feel free to contact a Cookie Concierge at 1-888-435-3647.
Thank you again for your interest in Eleni's. We're excited to be providing our customers delectable sweets that are baked with care and concern.
