Consumers can now shop with confidence across North America and know that the products they are purchasing meet the industry's strictest gluten-free requirements when they see the GFCP trademark.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) and the Canadian Celiac Association are pleased to announce that Comensoli Foods has become one of the growing number of GFCP certified companies and that they have recently introduced a line of gluten-free products across Canada. The display of the GFCP trademark on Comensoli Foods ensures that consumers can shop for a trusted and easily identifiable source of safe gluten-free products.
The Gluten-Free Certification Program is a voluntary program designed for manufacturers and brand owners committed to producing safe, reliable gluten-free products. The program combines stringent, risk-based gluten-free requirements with globally recognized food safety management systems which exceed government requirements in both Canada and the United States. It is verified by an annual robust, third-party facility audit process which ensures continued compliance. Consumers can now shop with confidence across North America and know that the products they are purchasing meet the industry's strictest gluten-free requirements when they see the GFCP trademark.
Creating the Comensoli Foods product lineup has been an exciting journey and one that Comensoli is still in the midst of. Research and development of ingredients, equipment and techniques have been built into their very core. They have deconstructed and rebuilt several parts of their conventional baking and production methods, creating recipes and equipment that work with their distinctive formulas. Key to Comensoli Foods' success has been the learning of how gluten-free baking and blending needs an innovative approach. The product line includes: Muffin, Pancake, Cookie, Cake, Brownie and Bread mixes, Pizza shells, Dressed Pizzas and Pasta. From breakfast (muffins, waffles and pancakes) to lunch and dinner (sandwiches, pizza and pasta), the breadth of the delicious gluten-free lineup from Comensoli Foods lets you feed you and your family at any time of day.
About the Gluten-Free Certification Program
The GFCP is a voluntary certification program designed to help brand owners to differentiate their gluten-free products from the increasing clutter of those with gluten-free claims. Instead of relying upon end-product testing, the Gluten-Free Certification Program is based on a management system approach that requires facilities to integrate a framework of policies and procedures to ensure that they are consistently producing safe, reliable gluten-free products. This approach provides an additional level of assurance benefiting manufacturers and brand owners by reducing their risk and also facilitates increased access to the growing gluten-free market. http://www.glutenfreecertification.ca
