Allergy Friendly Back to School Snacks with MadeGood
If anyone in your family has food allergies, you know how difficult it can be to find healthy treats. Many of the popular choices contain nuts, gluten, or dairy. 

The Fotovat family has long worked to provide healthy, nutritious snack options like their granola bars and soft baked cookies. All of the MadeGood products are made in a facility free from the most common allergens; peanut, tree nut, soy, dairy, egg, fish, shellfish, gluten, and sesame. 

The company also sources their ingredients to adhere to industry standards for non-GMO, organic, vegan and gluten-free products in order to ensure the highest quality of ingredients.

Nima Fotovat joins host Andrea Donsky to share the inspiration behind the company's initiation and why the family is so passionate about company mission, culture, and the future of the planet.
