Established in 2004

The Gluten-Free Food Program (GFFP) was established in 2004 by the Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) and was the first program in North America to certify gluten-free manufacturers and brand owners while also providing advocacy and education for the celiac community. The National Celiac Association (NCA) later acquired the assets of CSA, including this gluten-free certification program, becoming the most recognized education and advocacy group for people with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders through more than 70 support groups and over 50 chapters across the nation. 

Today, the program is managed under the name Gluten-Free Food Program with a modern gluten-free certification logo designed to emphasize GFFP's objectives and values as an industry leader and strategically distinguish the gluten-free brands we represent in the marketplace. The GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ gluten-free message and visual appeal lets GFFP’s certified customers easily engage and establish trust with gluten-free consumers.

The GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ is endorsed by the National Celiac Association. This endorsement provides gluten-free brands with a powerful supporting message to help effectively market and communicate with the gluten-free community, build genuine relationships and maximize long-term customer loyalty.  

GFFP gluten-free certification is a voluntary program developed by industry experts with standards founded on globally accepted preventative, gluten-free safety approaches for the manufacturing of gluten-free products.
