Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
Sahale Snacks, producer of premium all-natural snacks, is pleased to announce that its production facility and all of its products are now certified kosher (KOF-K) as of January 4, 2012. This change will be reflected on the company's packaging over the next several months.
“We are delighted with our new kosher status and will proudly display the KOF-K symbols on all of our packaging. We are excited to be introducing millions of kosher consumers to our healthy great tasting snacks,” says Co-Founder Edmond Sanctis.
The products and plant are certified by KOF-K, whose emblem is the internationally recognized trademark of KOF-K Kosher Supervision, one of the foremost kosher certification agencies in the US. Marketing studies have identified that Americans in growing numbers prefer to buy kosher products for a variety of religious, health, and quality issues.
In another effort to make Sahale Snacks more accessible to a broader base of consumers, the company achieved Certified Gluten-Free status in 2011. This allows those with gluten intolerance and Celiac disease to enjoy the product with confidence.
Sahale Snacks produces three lines of kosher and gluten-free snack products: Nut Blends (Sing Buri, Soledad, Valdosta,), Glazed Nuts (Cashews with Pomegranate and Almonds with Cranberries), and Seasoned Nuts (Tuscan Almonds, Barbeque Almonds, and Southwest Cashews). SRPs range from $.99/.75oz to $4.99/4oz.
About Sahale Snacks
Sahale Snacks was founded in Seattle in 2003 by Josh Schroeter and Edmond Sanctis after climbing Mt. Rainier and enduring days of uninspiring trail mix and energy bars. The two friends set out to create a natural and healthy snack that tasted great. The company follows a simple philosophy: Start with natural whole ingredients, add a dash of culinary magic and offer busy consumers convenient, delightful, healthy snacks. Sahale Snacks is dedicated to helping people “Snack Better.”
The founders named the company after Sahale Peak, which is north of the Cascade Pass in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State. Pronounced “sah-HA-lee,” it’s a beautiful peak with a cool glacier and great views. For more information please visit http://www.sahalesnacks.com or Sahale Snacks on Facebook and Twitter.
