I was grocery shopping at Loblaws the other day and I saw that they sell bakery products made by Touche Bakery.

These products are 100% nut free, as they are manufactured in a nut-free, peanut-free factory, and they also verify that all of their suppliers are nut-free, peanut-free.

For more details, here is their web site. This is a great opportunity for those of you who want to by baked products, but don't trust bakeries:

Thanks Erik - yeah another company actually marketing that they are peanut/nut free!
I will look for the products at Loblaws, but there is nothing on their site about their packaging so I am not sure what to look for. Are they individually wrapped or in a package?
thanks
deb

Hi Deb,
At the Loblaws in Toronto that I went to (near Laird & Millwood, south of Eglinton), the Touche products were all placed together in the bakery area, and Loblaws had signs on the shelf saying "nut free products". In fact, there was another manufacturer of nut-free products too in that section but I forgot the name.
If you can't find them, you could ask someone in the bakery, as maybe these products are only available in the larger Loblaws stores.
It is great another company is providing products that are 100% safe [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again erik for this info. I look forward to trying these products and promoting them to all friends and family who are always in search of safe desserts. I have just emailed Touche a thank you letter for their excellent corporate judgement by including us as potential customers. Good work erik.

Thanks for that, Erik! It's so nice to find nut free products in the bakery section. I always feel bad when I can't get any of the Vachon cakes for my son, so I usually skip that area of Loblaws. They opened a HUGE Loblaws at Bayview and hwy 7, that has a photo studio, furniture, electronics, etc. They must have these new baked goods!
My son will love you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Just bought a couple of their loaf cakes and also some choc chip cookies in same section made by Branson's. Bought them at Fortinos in Woodbridge today. They had a section also labelled nut free products.

Eric, you might be my new hero [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]
I checked the web-site, then sent an e-mail because I also have to worry about sesame seeds and don't buy baked goods (except Krispy Kreme). They don't use sesame seeds or oil, but don't guarantee no contact at their suppliers.
For people with other allergies, they do keep track of major allergens both in their plant and at suppliers.
I asked them to consider adding sesame seed to that list and guess what? They are going to. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Thanks Erik!

I called the Loblaws near me and they had never heard of "Touche" bakery products. I mentioned that other Loblaws stores were carrying them, and explained it was a peanut/nut free product. She said they did have a new peanut free product, and checked it for me, it was Touche.
Just wanted to mention, you might have to be careful HOW you ask. No big sign near the display though. They had their sign at the store exit. If I hadn't been in a rush I would have suggested they put it either at the entrance, or the counter with the product.

You're welcome Anna Marie,
It is great that there are companies like "Touche Bakeries" and "Branson" that provide nut-free products for us.
I think Loblaws will notice they are selling them fast now that we have publicized them here at this site [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
