Little Northern Bakehouse, an egg and dairy-free, allergy-friendly baked goods company, announced support of the Celiac Disease Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy initiatives.
Celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine, affects 1 in 100 people worldwide and often goes undiagnosed. It is estimated that 3 million Americans live with celiac disease, but 2.5 million do not know they have it. In support of the Foundation, Little Northern Bakehouse will help raise awareness of this serious disease and provide accessible, gluten-free options for those who need it most. Together, our voices are stronger and our community impact is greater.
“The Celiac Disease Foundation is pleased to work with Little Northern Bakehouse, a company that works hard to support consumers on a gluten-free diet. Our partnership shows Little Northern Bakehouse’s commitment to those who have celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. We’re excited to see what we can accomplish together,” states Marilyn G. Geller, CEO of the Celiac Disease Foundation.
“Little Northern Bakehouse is a combination of continuing to share that ah-ha moment of ‘I can have bread back in my life’ and innovation. Our team delivers gluten-free options that aren’t a compromise, and we know that really matters to our community.” —Darren Mahaffy, Chief Marketing Officer.
