Frequently asked Questions

Are your products manufactured in a peanut/tree nut free facility? / Do they contain any of the top 8 allergens? (Milk, Eggs, Fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod), Crustacean shellfish (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp), Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans), Peanuts, Wheat, Soybeans)

Our products are 100% pure fruit & veg with absolutely no added nonsense. They’re also packed in a packaging house where there is no cross-contamination with nuts, dairy, soya, wheat, egg or legumes. Here at BEAR we aim to produce snacks that are as close to being allergen free as possible, so that all our BEAR cubs can enjoy them, even those with dietary requirements!

Do BEAR Yoyos contain any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)?

Our ingredients are really simple, exactly what you see printed on our packaging is what's inside (it's not our style to hide anything, or be sneaky). We set up BEAR to make simpler, tastier foods from grrreat ingredients and with no added nonsense, so you can be rest assured that there are absolutely no GMOs in any BEAR products.

Are your packs recyclable?

Our cardboard multipack boxes are fully recyclable - we use only FSC ( certified or recycled board for all our outercases. They are also compostable - low migration (water based) ink is printed on the boxes which means that the packaging is safe to compost as no nasties (grrr!) will seep into the ground from the ink.

The current single wrappers may be recyclable at some specialist recycling points, but most probably not in your home recycling scheme. We are on track to sourcing compostable/recyclable cards and film for our single packs. Our biggest hurdle here is that our packaging is the only form of preservation for our 100% natural snacks. However, we are in the process of shelf life testing using more sustainable packaging, so watch this space…

We care a lot about protecting our natural environment and are always looking for ways to improve our packaging and business overall in this area. We’re not perfect, but we’re doing the best we can.
