About the Gluten-Free Certification Program
Millions of consumers with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity need an easy and trusted way to identify gluten-free foods. Manufacturers worldwide are also looking for a third-party endorsement to signal their commitment to gluten-free food safety. The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) is the solution.
The GFCP is a voluntary certification program, founded on proven and globally accepted food safety systems such as HACCP principles, which enables manufacturers to efficiently manage the safe production of gluten-free products. This preventative program minimizes the business risk associated with gluten-free product claims and reduces the likelihood of recalls by establishing gluten controls beyond product testing. Through partnerships with leading consumer celiac organizations, the GFCP endorsed certification trademark on packaging enables gluten-free brands to send the right message to consumers at the point of purchase, thus enhancing brand trust and product loyalty.
