Field To Fingers Nut Free Process
When Don't Go Nuts was started a nut-free facility was required, of course, but they felt that they needed to do more. After much research, they developed what they call the Field to Fingers Nut-Free Process, a first-of-its-kind inspired practice to ensure that every step of the journey is nut free.
From start to finish, Don't Go Nuts' nut-free ingredients are processed using only nut-free equipment. We require confirmation of that from each and every supplier.
They built their own nut-free facility and added all new equipment to prepare our foods.
Their facility has many security features, including the ingredient receiving room, where dust is blown from ingredient packages and removed from the building before ingredients enter other areas.
