Breaking News: Schär to Break Ground on US Facility
I was formally introduced to Schär USA, Inc. last July when I attended a wonderful luncheon in New York City. Although I had eating Schär in Italy, I never had their products in the United States. I left with a full belly, a gluten-free goodie bag of Schär products, and a new favorite gluten-free company for breadsticks, cookies, and more.


Today, I learned that Schär is breaking ground on their first United States manufacturing facility in New Jersey on Tuesday. This is great news for both Schär and the gluten-free community. Although Schär tries to keep their prices low, they are still importing most of their products from Europe. A manufacturing facility in the United States will help eliminate those international importing costs which will hopefully keep their prices down.


Congratulations to Schär USA, Inc. for their United States expansion and good luck on Tuesday!

Schar is big in Europe. Every one of Schar products I've tasted are delicious, whether someone is gluten-free or not. Schar helped me in Europe with snacks while on tours. Can't say enough good about them. How marvelous they will be stateside soon for us GFers.
