Visitor Weblog by Amanda Orlando, Founding father of On a regular basis Allergen Free & Dealt with With Care
“As individuals with meals allergy symptoms, we all know that a bit care goes a great distance”
Why did I create the store?
I have been allergic to peanuts, tree nuts (excluding coconut), dairy, soy, and sure legumes, my complete life. The thought for the Dealt with With Care was derived out of two sources of private frustration.
First, with on-line retailers that do not have a curated collection of allergy-friendly merchandise accessible to browse. With so many great allergy-friendly, household run firms popping up in the marketplace, discoverability is so vital! All the pieces within the store is chosen for individuals with meals allergy symptoms, celiac illness, or different dietary restrictions in thoughts.
The second, that exterior of main cities the place grocery choices are restricted, it may be troublesome to search out free-from meals. I used to be lucky to have gone to school in Toronto, however many allergic teenagers exterior of town didn’t expertise the identical accessibility to protected meals that I did whereas away for college.
Given the sturdy give attention to curation, there may be additionally a big selection of product bundles that make nice care packages or presents. I consider that protected merchandise must be simply accessible and inexpensive for everybody, even when you do not dwell near a pure meals retailer.
3% of all gross sales shall be donated to The Stroll for Andrea from now till the top of September, 2018. This charity helps meals allergy analysis at Sick Youngsters hospital and the stroll to boost consciousness.
The title, Dealt with With Care, has a lot which means for me personally. Sure, it’s a cute pun on the truth that our merchandise are ordered and shipped, nevertheless it additionally displays the thoughtfulness and care that I’ve put into curation, and that every buyer places into deciding on merchandise for themselves or as a present. As individuals with meals allergy symptoms, we all know that a bit care goes a great distance.
