Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP)
Service Provider in Milton, Ontario
We are one of North America’s leading subject matter experts in the field of gluten-free and allergen food-safety compliance and marketing. An increasing number of consumers suffer from celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity. There is no cure for people suffering from these ailments and the only remedy is to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for life. Over 25 million North Americans looking for gluten-free products are confused and overwhelmed by the number of gluten-free label claims in the market. They are looking for a way to identify safe, reliable gluten-free products they can trust, hence the development of the Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP). In 2009 the CCA commissioned the development of a voluntary certification program based on a preventative, science-based approach for managing the safe production of gluten-free products – The Gluten-Free Certification Program. The GFCP was established with consensus from consumer and industry associations, retailers, manufacturers, and government agencies.
