We have many sweets from many different manufactures and we are aware of the serious health risk to people who are allergic to whole peanuts, nuts or nut derivatives. It is with regret we are unable to assure you that the products that we supply will not have traces of nuts.
As the making of sweets may involve using the same production line for products with or without nuts we cannot 100% guarantee traces of nuts will not be present in ANY sweet. There is always a risk of cross contamination at some point in the food chain. Please bare this is mind if you suffer from other forms of allergies.
If we are supplying sweets that we know contain nuts these will be clearly labelled and stored separately from all other products. All our sweets are handled with hygiene gloves. Gloves will always be changed if handling any sweets containing nuts.
If you do require any specific information about a certain product then please contact us and we will do our best to answer any queries that you may have.
Wit and Wisdom cannot be held responsible for safety issues which occur from the use of our equipment or consumption of our confectionary at your event.
