Snyder's of Hanover continues to support gluten-free living by partnering with the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF). The Hanover, PA, snack manufacturer will donate to the CDF 5 cents from every specially marked bag of Snyder's of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzels sold from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30, up to $25,000. The partnership is helping to fund research, treatment and raise awareness of celiac disease, an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
According to CDF, celiac disease affects approximately one in 100 people worldwide. Snyder's of Hanover launched its line of Gluten-Free Pretzels in 2013 and continues to expand the line to offer flavorful snacking options, including Honey Mustard and Onion Pretzel Sticks, to those living gluten-free.
In addition to the donation, Snyder's of Hanover's Gluten-Free Pretzels will be featured in CDF INSIGHT News magazine and also have a major presence at the CDF National Conference and Gluten-Free Expo, held May 2-3, 2015, in Pasadena, CA.
"We are delighted to be partnering with Celiac Disease Foundation and helping to raise awareness and funding for such an important cause,” says Faith Atwood, marketing manager for Snyder's of Hanover. “We hope that through our combined efforts and donations, we can continue to further our understanding of the disease that affects so many Americans today."
More details about the campaign can be found at Snyder’s of Hanover’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SnydersOfHanover). A full listing of the company's gluten-free products is available at www.SnydersofHanover.com.
