Guest blog by Nova Kaufman & Ana Diaz, Co-Founders of Basquet
We are Nova and Ana, best friends first and co-founders of Basquet as a close second. Basquet is an allergen-friendly online grocer which was created with the core mission to deliver individuals and families struggling with food allergies a stress-free grocery shopping experience. We double and triple check labels and their respective ingredients, worrying about the fine print so others don’t have to.
Basquet was born from a mission and a vision based on experience. Ana has dealt with a severe nut allergy her entire life, struggling to find safe products which were free from cross-contamination. This was the spark that eventually became a flame. Realizing that there was a disconnect in the market for guaranteed worry-free shopping, we decided to build a platform dedicated to helping those facing the same challenge, yet on a larger scale; we wanted to build a safe space for those facing aversions to the Top 9 allergens: tree-nuts, peanuts, sesame, dairy, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, and egg. Working closely with FARE (The Food Allergy Research & Education Organization), Basquet curates the best allergen-friendly products from over 140 brands so customers can simply filter by their allergies, intolerances, and preferred lifestyles, enabling them to shop worry-free knowing everything is safe (and delicious).
