GFFP's gluten-free certification requirements are developed with our customers in mind. A great customer experience and lower costs are top priorities.
True Personalized Service
We recognize that each GFFP customer is unique, so we tailor how we work to support each customers' gluten-free business needs and manufacturing systems.
GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™
Displaying the GFMP Certified Mark of Trust™ on product packaging gives added assurance to consumers looking for safe, reliable gluten-free products they can trust.
GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ is easily identifiable and meets North American and worldwide gluten-free trademark regulations. It shows consumers that products bearing the logo are manufactured in a GFFP approved facility and have systems in place to ensure products they produce meet legal FDA requirement for gluten-free food labeling along with stringent gluten test standards of 5 parts-per million (ppm) or less, as established by National Celiac Association.
GFFP Gluten-Free Certification for Manufactured Products
Our 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 gluten-free certification 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 the GFFP gluten-free certification increases consumer confidence that manufacturing procedures have been reviewed by a neutral party and demonstrates legitimacy of the manufacturer’s gluten-free processes.
To further support certification, GFFP requires that all GFFP certified products meet the strictest industry requirement of less than 5 parts-per-million (ppm) 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 licence agreement and receive the GFFP Certified Mark of Trust™ displaying products as certified, safe and reliable.
Endorsed by the National Celiac Association
