What's your vision?
Description Our goal is to have our packaging look like it was designed by Landor, Dragon Rouge or Pearlfisher. We are a start-up on a shoestring budget, so we are hoping to find an undiscovered design genius willing to help us create something awesome. We have existing package that we put together ourselves. Now that we are going into larger production runs we are transitioning into a traditional 4x2x6” box (template attached). It is not the most exciting packaging, but it works. It is easy to construct, package, ship and display. Our main consumers are people dealing with food allergies or food intolerances, but we do not want to limit our products to just these consumers. We are looking to reach our broader consumer base with our all-natural positioning. We want the main message to be all-natural and the secondary message to be allergy-aware. A third message is that our products are vegan.

Introduction: On January 12, 2011, our daughter Evelyn Virginia was diagnosed with a severe peanut and tree nut allergy. This was a life changing experience for our family. Quickly we learned the difficulties of dealing with a food allergy. Shopping at the grocery became an intimidating task. The thought of birthday parties and social gatherings struck fear in us. Over time we learned to cope with the situation and learned how to keep our daughter Evelyn safe. Although it is not an easy. We need to read the labels of every product we buy, every time we buy it. It is not just food items that we need to check. Household items like soaps, lotions and cleaning products need to be checked, as they are sometimes produced with food allergens. Manufacturing practices change constantly, so the product that has been purchased 100 times still needs to be checked. We have experienced both of these situations in the short time since our daughter was diagnosed with a food allergy. 12 million American suffer from food allergies and another 50 million suffer from food intolerances. This is just a small part of the picture. 12 million Americans with food allergies translates to 12 million households with food allergies. There is no cure for food allergies and they are often life threatening. Avoidance of allergens is the only solution. Thus, using the US Census’ most conservative figure of 3.17 people per household, the larger picture is that roughly 38 million Americans are affected by food allergies. 38 million people is 12.3% of the US population. To put it in context, the African American community is 12.9% of the population and the Hispanic community is 15.8% of the population. Schools have begun to recognize the dangers of food allergies, particularly with regards to peanuts and tree nuts. They have taken steps to curtail these items from being brought to school. School administrations have developed policies on food allergies and have provided strict guidelines on what can be brought to school. This is especially true when food is going to be shared, such as a birthday celebration. Parents are provided with a list of acceptable products. With an average of 1 in 12 children having a food allergy, this issue will affect almost every classroom in the US. Unfortunately, the prevalence of allergies is increasing exponentially. From 1997 to 2007 there was an 18% increase in food allergies in children under 18 years. Peanut allergies went from 1 in 250 children in 1997, to 1 in 70 children in 2008 – tripling in just 11 years. There are many challenges for families with food allergies and food intolerances. The first challenge is finding food that is safe. Going to a supermarket with thousands of products and finding a product that is safe is a tough proposition. One needs to read the ingredients of every product, which tends to be dozens of ingredients. One needs to be a detective to find safe products. For example, US law does not mandate that labeling disclose cross contamination risks, so parents that have children with severe allergies have to track down customer service departments and ask questions about manufacturing. Another example, Rennet casein, Diacetyl, and Ghee are all names of milk products, one of the most common allergens. There are at least 50 names for milk products that can cause a serious allergic reaction. What is most limiting when dealing with food allergies are sweets – cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, breads, ice cream, chocolate bars, etc. They tend to include most of the top allergens. (90% of food allergy reactions are caused by 8 foods: Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Fish, and Shell Fish.) The threat of cross contamination is too high to tempt fate, so parents of allergic children, including ourselves, have decided to make our own treats. This is especially true when going to birthday parties. We always bring our own homemade sweets. We often bring enough for the other children as well. This is how we came to the decision to start a nut free consumer package goods company. We want to make life just a little bit easier for families dealing with food allergies. We also want it to be easy for concerned friends and extended family members to be inclusive of folks with food allergies and food intolerances. The following is a post from www.nutfreeliving.blogspot.com that illustrates what is like to deal with food allergies…. Sometimes it is the little things that break your heart, parenting a food allergic child. We had a quick trip to the grocery store today. When we walk in, we go straight through the bakery section. Both the kids know, we do not take the cookies from them, so we are over that. Today, walking through, my little Rooney said, "I wish I could have some cake." Man, I saw the way he looked at the beautiful bakery cakes, and my heart melted for a minute. I said, "honey, you can have some cake, just not those cakes." "Oh, okay" was the answer he gave and we were on our way. Goodness I love that little guy. He has been so adaptable, from day one, with his allergies. Any guesses what this Mommy might be making tonight?

There was an 18% rise in food allergies in children from 1998 to 2007. Currently, 1 in 12 children suffers from a food allergies. Schools are feeling obligated to attempt to prevent life threatening allergens from entering their facility.
