The 150+-year-old San Francisco-based chocolate maker said these newly dairy-free retail products will make their debut on shelves beginning June 2023, and will be produced on the company’s dedicated dairy-free line at their Fairfield California facility with the aim of providing consumers with safety and choice in their chocolate.
“Guittard is already beloved for its high-quality baking staples, and shifting some of our most requested products to dairy-free will continue to bolster trust and usability with allergen-conscious consumers,” said Gary Guittard, CEO of Guittard Chocolate.
The introduction of these products expands diverse benefits for consumers, industrial customers and professionals looking for allergen-friendly and kosher pareve options, he added.
Guittard’s Fairfield facility, which opened in 2001, allows the company a dedicated production line that is kosher pareve and free of 14 major food allergens. The Fairfield facility expanded Guittard’s production beyond their original Burlingame facility, which is peanut-free, tree nut-free, and gluten-free.
