Buddee launches school-safe spreads

Australian-owned and operated company Buddee offers tasty spreads that are free from the top 10 allergens including nuts, wheat, soy, dairy and sesame, dedicated to putting spreads back in school lunchboxes.

Co-founded by Seong-Lee Ang and Rodney Chieng, Buddee recognises that Australia has one of the largest food allergy rates in the world, leading to strict policies in schools across the nation.

As a parent experiencing first-hand how difficult it can be with two children who struggle with severe food allergies, Mr Ang has made it his personal mission to ensure that Buddee provides a safe and inclusive food option for little hands and school lunchboxes.

“Above all, we wanted to create a product that not only tastes delicious but can be enjoyed by all children so that no-one feels they are missing out,” says Mr Ang. “We want Buddee to be that friend that will always be there, so developing a product that was safe to take to school was a non-negotiable.”

Teaming up with Mr Chieng who brings his flair for formulation and attention to detail to the table, the result is a delicious school-safe spread that doesn’t compromise on taste or texture – setting them apart from the very few allergy-friendly spreads that already exist on supermarket shelves.

Designed to be enjoyed by all children, not just those suffering with food allergies, Buddee is recognisable by its super cute branding and playful packaging with a smiley face in the logo, strengthening the brand’s core value of being inclusive in nature.

Buddee contains less sugar, less saturated fat and is free from palm oil. Buddee spreads are also vegan-certified and available in three variants; Crunchy, Smooth and Chocolate.

Buddee Chocolate and Smooth spreads (RRP $6.50) are available at Woolworths supermarkets nationally. Buddee Chocolate and Crunchy spreads will be available at Coles supermarkets nationally in September.
