FARE and Sifter Announce Grocery Shopping Technology for the Food Allergy Community

A partnership that will help make grocery shopping easier and less time-consuming

MCLEAN, Va. - November 10, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the nation's leading non-profit organization engaged in food allergy advocacy and the largest private funder of food allergy research, and Sifter SP, Inc., a leader in food and nutrition digital technology, announce a partnership that will help make grocery shopping easier and less time-consuming.

Food shopping is a major challenge for more than 85 million Americans with food allergies and intolerances. Now, using Sifter's robust, science-based shopping platform, food-allergic individuals and families can make better food decisions and save hours of time when grocery shopping. In addition, the platform is accurate and easy to use, giving peace of mind to those with even the most restrictive dietary challenges.

Specifically, the FARE-Sifter partnership recognizes that many individuals with food allergies are also challenged by other diet-related health conditions. The Sifter shopping platform, available on the FARE homepage, will allow a person with complex diet needs—for example, a dairy intolerance, a nut allergy, and diabetes—to discover a wider variety of suitable foods when shopping online or in-store. Built by a team of Sifter nutrition experts and software developers and powered by algorithms that support dietary standards of practice, the Sifter technology is designed to help the food allergy community make better food decisions and also take the fear out of grocery shopping.

"We are so excited to be partnering with Sifter," said Sung Poblete, PhD, RN, CEO of FARE. "Grocery shopping for members of the food allergy community has always been challenging due to the scrutiny necessary in reading ingredient labels. With the technology behind Sifter's new platform, the chore of food shopping won't be so difficult." 

"FARE is an ideal partner for Sifter. Their commitment to helping people with food allergies perfectly aligns with Sifter's mission of making healthy eating easy for everyone. The FARE-Sifter partnership will help millions of people shop with ease and confidence for allergen-free foods," said Judy Seybold, Chief Nutrition Officer, Sifter.

Grape Solar’s Oregon Solar Industrial Park (OSIP) to Be the First of Many

Making all solar panel components in America, again

EUGENE, Ore. - November 22, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Grape Solar, Inc. has now secured commitments from leading manufacturers of solar panel components to be part of its first industrial park. The Oregon Solar Industrial Park (OSIP) is a vision Grape Solar has planned since the company started more than a decade ago in Eugene, Oregon, in 2009.

The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, signed into law by President Joe Biden, is a key driver to encourage Made in America solar panels and create tens of thousands of local manufacturing jobs. Grape Solar has positioned itself as the leading innovator, chief architect, and developer of five future solar industrial parks in different regions across the U.S.A., with planned capacity of 100GW requiring $40 billion total investment from private and public partnerships.  

One major category of key components is encapsulant materials used in laminating solar cells into modules during the manufacturing process. These films protect the solar cells from oxygen and moisture, making the panels much more reliable and efficient. 

One of the global large-scale manufacturers of encapsulant material is HIUV, an international producer of EVA and POE materials that has patented technology in the United States. "Making our patented products in the U.S.A. makes perfect sense. We will serve our global customers better by shortening lead time and improving our technical customer support and services locally. We are delighted to be part of Grape Solar's OSIP initiative," said Min Li, Chairman and CEO of HIUV, which is a $2 billion publicly traded company on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (688680.SS)

"Global solar companies are choosing to expand their solar panel manufacturing footprint in the U.S.A. at an unprecedented speed and scale, to join the wave of on-shoring manufacturing that is under way and will last for the next few decades. So far, these companies are all talking about making finished solar panels, however, without a dozen or so components that go into a solar panel, there is no secured supply chain to speak of. That's what OSIP is all about: building every component in America, creating local jobs, contributing to regional economic development, and permanently changing the landscape of America's solar supply chain," commented Ocean Yuan, founder and CEO of Grape Solar, who is the creator of Oregon Solar Industrial Park.
