Meet the Maker: Blake Seed Based

With a class project to solve a social need, Blake Sorensen not only nailed the assignment, but he also launched a company. Blake struggled to find bars that were safe for his tree nut allergy, tasted great and matched his healthy lifestyle. A successful Kickstarter campaign proved he wasn’t alone and Blake’s Seed Based was launched. His commitment to taste was rivaled by his equally high standards to pick a manufacturer. Spoiler alert: the facility requires a pat down for nuts to enter! With the goal to donate one million bars to schools in need, through it’s Bar For a Box Program, Blake’s Seed Based is truly raising the bar. In partnership with our friends at

Meet the Maker: 88 Acres

When it comes to food allergy-friendly snacks, 88 Acres is seriously raising the bar. The farm-to-pantry, top 9 allergen-free snack brand makes craveable granola bars, Seednola and seed butters that are nearly impossible to put down. It was a labor of love from the start for 88 Acres owners Nicole and Rob. On their fourth date, Rob had a life-threatening allergic reaction, which changed Nicole's relationship to food forever. The Harvard business grad became a woman on a mission, making snacks she and Rob could both enjoy — including the ever-elusive, tasty nut-free granola bar. Luckily, she was willing to share with the rest of us.
