Why does Upfront Foods put nutritional information and ingredients on the front of the package?
The answer is simple, just like our products. Who wants to pick up a package and turn it around to see what's inside? We just want to make it easier for you. Plus, we're proud of our simple and delicious ingredients, and proud of our Non GMO granola, so we put them up front for the world to see. We are all about making things simple and easy, which is why our granola makes an easy and healthy breakfast snack.
Is Upfront Foods' granola gluten free?
No. Although our granolas are wheat free, our oats are not gluten free.
Is Upfront Food Granola Non GMO Granola?
Yes, Upfront Foods' granolas have been verified by the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project is North America's only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance.
Are your products Kosher?
Yes, all three Upfront Foods’s granolas are Kosher certified, one of the world's most respected symbols of kosher approval. We hope you enjoy our Kosher cereal snacks often!
How long can you use a product after the "Best By" date?
The “Best By” date is recommended for best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date. Because of their high oil content, whole grains and nuts can spoil easily so, “When in doubt, throw out.”
Why does Upfront Foods use pouches to package their granola?
Many cereals come packaged in boxes with an inside bag. What a waste! Once opened, the interior bag doesn't seal and the cereal gets stale quickly. We designed our packaging to provide you with delicious food in a single serving pouch that ensures it's safe, convenient and fresh. By using a flexible packaging pouch, Upfront Foods is reducing waste and energy consumption in the manufacturing and transportation of our products.
