Toronto, Canada—Allergen Control Group (ACG), a BRC Global Standards Company and owner of the Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP), announced the publication of its latest issue of the Gluten-Free Certification Program Global Standard Issue #3 in a press release.

GFCP is, according to the release, a set of voluntary certification Global Standards based on a preventative, science-based approach for managing the safe manufacturing and production of gluten-free products. It was established with consensus from consumer and industry associations, retailers, manufacturers, and government agencies. It applies to the control of gluten in the manufacture, processing, and packing of gluten-free products.

It can be applied to processed foods, ingredients for use by food manufacturers and service companies, pet foods, cosmetics, natural health products, and drugs.

Paul Valder, president and CEO of ACG, said in the release, “We hope that the added food safety rigors now captured in Issue #3 will help manufacturing sites and the leading celiac consumer organizations recognized GFCP as the gold-standard for protecting consumers.”
