The Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) has been empowering the gluten-free community through consumer support, advocacy, and education for over four decades. GIG’s outreach is not only to those with gluten-related disorders but to everyone who has made the decision to live gluten-free. With the continued recognition of gluten-free dietary needs and the recent emphasis on gluten-free products and offerings, our role in the community is more important now than ever. From providing community support through our local Branches, to being a leader in food safety certification, GIG is a top non-profit organization for consumers worldwide.
The Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of GIG, is a leader in the verification of quality, integrity, and purity of gluten-free products. One of the top certification programs in the world, GFCO inspects products and manufacturing facilities for gluten, in an effort to maintain strict industry standards. GFCO has currently certified over 30,000 products in 29 different countries.
The Gluten-Free Food Service (GFFS) Certification Program, a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group, is a proven model of established best practices for food service facilities offering gluten-free options. Certification is customized to the specific needs of each food service facility that works with GFFS; including factors such as facility size, number of locations, and the type of food service establishment. For more information about the GFFS program, please visit www.gffoodservice.org.
Generation GF was created to build confidence in kids, teens, and young adults with gluten-related sensitivities, and to help develop them into the future leaders of the gluten-free community. The primary goals of the Generation GF program are to create local support groups and provide families a system through which they can have their questions answered. Generation GF feels that the growth of these young ambassadors will be crucial to the continued recognition of the gluten-free movement.
