(RTTNews) – Mondelez International, Inc. said Monday that it has bought private U.S. snacking company Enjoy Life Foods.
 
The transaction was a simultaneous sign-and-close deal, financial terms of which were not disclosed.

Enjoy Life’s products are free from the eight most common allergens – wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish – which together account for about 90 percent of all food allergies.
