As part of an ongoing educational webinar series, GIG and GFCO hosted A Look Inside GFCO Certification: The Truth Behind The Logo on September 12, 2018.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- The steps of GFCO certification
- Corrective actions
- Myths and facts
GFCO’s Regulatory and Standards Manager Laura Allred discusses the ins and outs of that “certified gluten-free” logo you see on your favorite gluten-free products: What does it mean to be certified? What’s allowed and what’s not? What happens with a recall? Can you really trust that certification?
You also hear from Molly Hamilton of Molly’s Bakeovers and Melissa Hughes from Alter Eco about their experience with certification, and firsthand accounts of what certification means for their products.
This webinar is sponsored by Emport LLC.

How and why do businesses reach out to GIG to get certified? Are they solicited to do so or do they reach out to do so?
GFCO does not solicit or advertise to find companies seeking certification—they come to us, typically via phone or through the Contact Us form (253-833-6655, 253-218-2956, www.gfco.org/contact-us). They typically seek GFCOs certification because they want GFCO’s guidance and expertise in gluten-free production, and because retailers and consumers want the assurance of the GFCO logo on their packaging.
