What Does the Peanut-Free Icon Mean?
All Dare products are made in nut-free/peanut-free facilities. In fact, Dare became one of Canada's first peanut-free food manufacturers back in 2004.
Dare works with ingredient and packaging suppliers, auditing and testing to ensure that all components of its products are peanut/nut-free. The company has implemented regular training and education for its employees, and follows strict rules on what can be brought to its plants. Dare regularly tests the effectiveness of its facility and equipment cleaning and sanitation procedures to ensure no contamination is present. These practices apply to all facilities, so every Dare product carries the statement "Made in a nut-free/peanut-free facility."
For products that are likely to be purchased for children, or consumed in environments such as schools and daycare centres, Dare takes the extra step of conducting finished goods testing for additional verification. These products carry an easily-recognizable peanut-free icon on the front panel.
