Snyder’s of Hanover Donates Portion of Sales to Support Celiac Disease Foundation
Hanover, PA – Snyder’s of Hanover continues to support gluten-free living by partnering with Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) for the months of October and November. From October 1st – November 30th, Snyder’s of Hanover will donate $.05 from every specially marked bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzels sold to CDF (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 villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
According to CDF, celiac disease is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Snyder’s of Hanover launched their 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 Magazineand will also have a major presence at the CDF National Conference and Gluten-Free Expo taking place in Pasadena, CA on May 2nd – 3rd of 2015.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Celiac Disease Foundation and helping to raise awareness and funding for such an important cause,” said 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.”
Snyder’s of Hanover offers a variety of products for those in search of flavorful, gluten-free snacks. Current offerings include Gluten-Free Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzel Sticks, Gluten-Free Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Sticks, Gluten-Free Mini Pretzels, Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks and Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks in 100-calorie packs.
