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 just a little care goes a good distance”
Why did I create the store?
I have been allergic to peanuts, tree nuts (excluding coconut), dairy, soy, and sure legumes, my entire life. The concept for the Dealt with With Care was derived out of two sources of non-public frustration.
First, with on-line retailers that do not have a curated choice of allergy-friendly merchandise obtainable to browse. With so many fantastic allergy-friendly, household run corporations popping up in the marketplace, discoverability is so vital! Every thing 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 tough to seek out free-from meals. I used to be lucky to have gone to college in Toronto, however many allergic teenagers exterior of town didn’t expertise the identical accessibility to protected meals that I did whereas away for varsity.
Given the robust give attention to curation, there’s additionally a wide array of product bundles that make nice care packages or presents. I imagine that protected merchandise ought to be simply accessible and inexpensive for everybody, even for those who do not reside near a pure meals retailer.
3% of all gross sales might be donated to The Stroll for Andrea from now till the top of September, 2018. This charity helps meals allergy analysis at Sick Children hospital and the stroll to boost consciousness.
The title, Dealt with With Care, has a lot that means for me personally. Sure, it’s a cute pun on the truth that our merchandise are ordered and shipped, but it surely additionally displays the thoughtfulness and care that I’ve put into curation, and that every buyer places into choosing merchandise for themselves or as a present. As individuals with meals allergy symptoms, we all know that just a little care goes a good distance.
