Namaste Foods, LLC, is excited to announce the opening of its new allergen-free manufacturing facility in its hometown of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. For the past eight years Namaste has enlisted co-packers to manufacture its exceptional line of gluten and allergen free baking mixes and pasta meals. While there are some benefits to this model, there are also many pitfalls.
‘We pride ourselves on offering not only the best tasting gluten free products at the best price, but also and perhaps more importantly, the safest products on the market’ states Daphne Taylor, Owner and Founder of Namaste Foods. ‘When you’re working with a co-packer there are just too many variables that are outside your control. After 11 years in business, we decided it was time to take the next step and bring the manufacturing under our roof and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result!’
Operating under the name of Taylor Gleason Enterprises, LLC, the new facility is virtually a one-of-a-kind allergen free facility. In addition to being free of the top eight allergens (dairy, egg, wheat/gluten, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish) the facility is also free of corn and potato. It is estimated that 30 percent or more of the people with food allergies have multiple allergies. Being free of so many allergens demonstrates Namaste’s commitment to people with
food allergies above and beyond other manufacturers.
Taylor Gleason Enterprises will entertain producing gluten and allergen free products for other manufacturers who are equally as serious about offering quality products in the safest environment possible. For more information, contact Michele Smith at 866-258-9493, ext. 310.
