It has come our attention that the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) has been named in a press release from a gluten-free certifier claiming to have an affiliation with GIG’s GFCO program. We wish to make our gluten-free community, advocates, and manufacturers aware that we are in no way connected to this program and have no information or knowledge about the efficacy of their gluten-free standards.
As a non-profit and the trusted leader in gluten-free certification, the primary goal of GFCO is to protect the consumer. Our GFCO certification mark stands for the independent verification of quality and integrity, and products that carry the mark represent unmatched reliability for meeting the strictest of gluten-free standards. We are proud that GFCO’s recognized focus on consumer safety has made it the most widely used and trusted gluten-free certification mark and felt it necessary to eliminate any confusion.
