GFFP Gluten-Free Certification for Manufactured Products
GFFP's unique approach to gluten-free certification enables our customers to reduce expenses, increase efficiency and gain a competitive edge in the gluten-free marketplace.
GFFP gluten-free certification is a voluntary program developed by industry specialists with standards founded on globally accepted preventative, gluten-free safety approaches for the manufacturing of gluten-free products.
GFFP gluten-free certification provides standards and best practices recognized by the gluten-free community to help our customers address the prevention and control of gluten cross-contamination and help augment existing gluten-free production procedures. Implementation of GFFP gluten-free certification standards increases consumer confidence that manufacturing procedures have been reviewed by a neutral party and demonstrates legitimacy of the manufacturer’s gluten-free processes.
GFFP gluten-free certification further requires that all products certified in the program meet the strictest industry requirement of 5 ppm (parts-per-million) or less, as established by the National Celiac Association. This promotes the highest safety standard, confidence and brand loyalty amongst the celiac community and those who require gluten-free products for other health reasons.
GFFP certifies products manufactured at both dedicated and non-dedicated gluten-free production facilities so long as those facilities conform to the requirements as set out in the GFFP Standards.
Brand owners producing gluten-free products directly through a manufacturing facility certified with GFFP can enter into a license agreement and receive the GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ displaying products as certified, safe and reliable.
