The GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ logo is widely recognized by grocery retailers, food safety leaders and gluten-free consumers everywhere, and highly valued by manufacturers and brand owners across all sectors to help promote gluten-free food safety and enhance confidence and trust in the products they make.

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 largest non-profit celiac disease organization in the United States through more than 70 support groups and over 50 chapters across the nation.
Today, the program is administered under the name Gluten-Free Food Program with a clear and distinctive gluten-free certification logo designed to emphasize GFFP's objectives and values as an industry leader, and strategically distinguish our customers and their gluten-free products and brands in the marketplace.
Developed By Industry Experts
GFFP is developed by industry experts with standards founded on globally accepted preventative, gluten-free safety approaches for the manufacturing of gluten-free products. GFFP gluten-free certification meets the strictest criteria of “WBRO-Free (free of wheat, barley, rye, and commercial oats) – in Product, Processing and Packaging,” and meets legal government requirements for gluten-free food labeling in the United States, Canada and worldwide.
GFFP’s gluten-free certification standards increases consumer confidence that manufacturing procedures have been reviewed and certified by an independent gluten-free expert and demonstrates legitimacy of the manufacturer’s gluten-free processes.
