“Living gluten-free can be a challenge” says Winnie Dang, Assistant Project Manager- Gluten Free at Weston Foods. “That’s why Weston Bakeries All But Gluten™ is committed to helping you make healthy, well-informed and delicious choices. Safety is paramount, and we have taken strict steps to ensure that All But Gluten™ products are safe for your consumption.

The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) trademark on food packages indicates that a manufacturer has participated in a voluntary food safety certification program designed for brand owners to ensure consumers that the products they are consuming/ using are gluten-free in their production.
The GFCP trademark is based on stringent, food safety programs and verified by a robust 3rd party audit process. The GFCP is endorsed by two of North Americas’ leading celiac organizations, the Canadian Celiac Association in Canada and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness in the United States. By seeing the GFCP trademark on gluten-free products consumers can shop with confidence and know the products they are purchasing meet the industry’s strictest gluten-free requirements.
“The CCA and NFCA promote the right to safe food, and have allowed us to develop the Gluten-Free Certification Program to meet those special needs,” states Paul Valder, President, Allergen Control Group Inc. “The CCA and NFCA advocate on behalf of approximately 21 million people across North America suffering from celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, who are frustrated by the uncertainty of identifying gluten-free products which are essential to their well-being.”
