Lofthouse Cookies Announces Nut-Free Production Facility

Lofthouse Cookies, a brand of ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE: CAG), has announced that the brand’s main bakery in Ogden, Utah completed a transition to becoming a nut-free facility on July 1. With nut allergies affecting nearly 2% of the U.S. population 1, the move allows those consumers to enjoy all of Lofthouse Cookies’ well-known frosted sugar cookies.

“Lofthouse Cookies’ transition to a nut-free facility is welcome news for cookie lovers everywhere,” said William Miller, senior brand manager for Lofthouse Cookies. “We know that nut allergies are a constant concern for millions of Americans and we’re glad this move will allow them to choose Lofthouse Cookies with confidence.”

While 90% of Lofthouse Cookies current product offerings are made without nuts, the move to a nut-free facility reduces the potential for inadvertent cross-contact with nut containing products, which is important for those suffering from nut allergies. As part of the transition, Lofthouse Cookies’ nut-based offerings, which include peanut butter cookies and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, will shift to a bakery in South Beloit, Illinois that already produced nut-based products. The transition will not impact the recipes for any current Lofthouse Cookies products.

Consumers can look for a “Manufactured in a Nut Free Facility” statement on Lofthouse Cookies packaging in stores soon. Additional in-store signage will also alert consumers to the transition.

Lofthouse Cookies are America’s top selling frosted sugar cookies and are available at grocery stores and major retailers nationwide. For more information, including locations where you can buy Lofthouse Cookies, visit www.lofthousecookies.com or follow Lofthouse Cookies on Facebook.
