Gluten Free Certification Options
The gluten-free products market is predicted to be worth $8.3 billion by 2025, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 8.1% between 2020 and 2025. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of and wary about gluten in their diet and one in three are now avoiding or reducing intake. A number of challenges must be overcome to produce safe, reliable gluten-free foods that inspire consumer confidence. These exist throughout the supply chain, from preventing cross-contamination in the production process to branding products with a gluten-free trademark that retailers and most importantly, consumers, truly trust.
91% of consumers declare that their buying decisions are impacted by third-party verification and 76% prefer products certified by a recognized coeliac association.
CCI uses a scientifically proven, risk-based management systems approach for effectively controlling gluten and gluten cross-contamination from incoming ingredients to the final product. It goes further than simply carrying out end-product testing and can easily be combined with a Food Safety audit.
