STAMFORD, Conn., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Makers of allergy-friendly organic treats, YumEarth, announces today the expansion of its national footprint with the introduction of the brand’s Organic Gummy Fruits in Target stores nationwide.

YumEarth’s mission is to make allergy-friendly treats more accessible so that everyone can enjoy special, shareable moments. Expanding into Target stores nationwide allows the brand wider access to a range of consumers seeking treats they can feel safe enjoying themselves and sharing with their loved ones.

YumEarth’s Gummy Fruits will feature FARE’s teal and white “Proud Supporter” emblem on the packaging and YumEarth will donate a portion of the proceeds of these specially marked products directly to FARE. YumEarth is the first brand to display this emblem.
