Arlington, VA (PRWEB) June 21, 2016
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program, recognized globally by retailers and foodservice providers who require a rigorous and credible food safety management system, is proud to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with the Allergen Control Group Inc. (ACG), owners of the Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP).
As the gluten-free market continues to forecast high-growth, brand owners who are committed to protecting their name require increased food safety and verified evidence before making regulated gluten-free claims. SQFI recognizes that the GFCP is a quality program and recommends the GFCP to suppliers seeking a gluten-free certification.
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) is a voluntary science-based program designed for manufacturers and brand owners committed to producing safe, reliable gluten-free products for consumers suffering from celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. The program requires the implementation of stringent, risk based and preventative gluten-free controls, which easily combines with a globally recognized food safety management system.

It is the only major system recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) that offers third-party accredited certification for primary production, food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management.
