Launching later this summer, the new packaging on Vermont Nut Free Chocolates will debut on the company’s best selling products including the Mini Chocolate Bars, Chocolate Drops, Bags of Animals, Trail Mix, Chocolate Covered Mini-Twists and Skippers®.

The packaging features a unique look for Vermont Nut Free Chocolates while bringing further cohesion to the brand as a whole. With the company’s 100% peanut and tree nut-free guarantee highlighted, the new packaging underscores Vermont Nut Free Chocolates’ promise to provide peace of mind to those who live with nut allergies.

“Our goal at Vermont Nut Free Chocolates is to continue to spread awareness about the dangers of peanut and tree nut allergies by providing a trusted product that can be enjoyed by those both with and without allergies,” says Mark Elvidge, president and co-founder of Vermont Nut Free Chocolates. “Through our new packaging, we hope to further communicate our commitment to nut allergy safe products to both our fans and trusted business partners including wholesalers and retailers.”

Food allergies are increasingly becoming a concern for families with researchers estimating that up to 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies, according to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). With this in mind, companies like Vermont Nut Free Chocolates help fill a need in the market for allergy-safe products. VT Nut Free Chocolates are in around 400 stores in 24 states and four Canadian Provinces with mail order customers worldwide.

Vermont Nut Free Chocolates will begin rolling out the new packaging to retailers and wholesalers starting in August 2016. All Vermont Nut Free Chocolates products are created in a completely nut-free environment, so parents of children with peanut or tree nut allergies can be confident in the nut-free guarantee. These sweet and safe treats are available in select stores and online.
