Schar, makers of some of my favorite gluten-free goodies including Ladyfingers and Baguettes, recently celebrated the opening of its first state-of-the-art gluten-free manufacturing facility in New Jersey with none other than gf celeb Jennifer Esposito who was honored with a donation for her non-profit organization Jennifer's Way Foundation for Celiac. 

Located in Swedesboro, New Jersey, the 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will produce Schar’s popular and newest baked goods. Most notably, Schar is excited to also announce the introduction of gluten-free plain and cinnamon bagels to the U.S. marketplace in response to consumer demand. Additionally, the site will produce the following baked goods:

  • Classic and Multigrain Ciabatta Parbaked rolls, and baguettes 
  • Hearty White Frozen Bread
  • Hearty Grain Frozen Bread
  • Upcoming baked goods currently in development

As a gluten-free facility, Schar will strictly adhere to the same rigorous production standards followed by all company facilities across the globe. From the selection of raw materials to the manufacturing of gluten-free baked goods, the facility will comply with the 20 ppm or less maximum gluten content standard established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission—a joint program of the World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization.   

Basically what this means is that you will get access to even more gluten-free goodness from Schar with the opening of this new plant! I'm especially looking forward to seeing the new products they come out with.

Hopefully more companies will take a cue from Schar and do their part in establishing dedicated gluten-free facilities that create jobs and bring new products to the gluten-free marketplace.
