As a mother of two school-aged children, I know that having access to nut-free dessert is of paramount importance.
I have many friends whose children are afflicted by nut allergies. In addition, many of Eleni’s loyal customers have told me that having access to nut-free treats is extremely important to them. As both a mother and a businesswoman who cares deeply about her family, friends, community and customers, it was imperative to me that I take the necessary steps to make sure that my business was doing its part to provide baked goods that could be enjoyed by all.
We are proud to state that all of Eleni's products are made in our own peanut-and tree nut-free dedicated facility. In addition, we use only the highest quality ingredients, and employ the most stringent testing, production and packing methods.
Our policies for maintaining a nut-free environment at our bakery include allergen-free statements from all our ingredient vendors as well as a "No Nuts Allowed" policy in our facility for employees and visitors.
To further ensure our nut-free policy, we use environmental testing swabs to randomly and frequently test our bakery and retail store for the presence of peanuts and tree nuts. The swabs use highly specific antibodies to detect allergic proteins from nuts.

Thank you again for your interest in Eleni's. We're excited to be providing our customers delectable sweets that are baked with care and concern.
