Who needs a GFCP certificate?
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) is addressed to manufacturers and brand owners wanting to produce safe and reliable products. The voluntary programme combines strict, risk-based gluten-free requirements with globally approved food safety management systems. GFCP is a non-regulatory standard based on HACCP, recommended by leading Northern-American celiac associations and implemented by the Allergen Control Group. The GFCP differs positively from all other certification programmes, because, in addition to certification, it provides its customers with access to research, marketing and communication initiatives of leading food companies and experts. In contrast to other gluten-free data, the GFCP standard is not exclusively based on analytical test results, since your existing management system is also verified during the annual Audits.
Your advantages from GFCP:
A GFCP certification does not only improve your relationship and contacts to manufacturers, brands and retailers. Above all, it mainly strengthens the trust placed in your products by sensitive consumers. Since: Those with no choice but to stick to a lifelong gluten-free diet, reward trust with brand loyalty!
