GFCP – Gluten Free Certification Program

Those interested in learning about the production complexities, government regulations and the required customer compliances, associated with producing food products with a gluten-free claim on the label will find this course beneficial. Managing gluten as a chemical hazard and the many hidden sources throughout the manufacturing process, will go a long way to informing those attending this course to better understand how to prepare for or conduct a meaningful gluten-free audit.

Pre-screened and qualified Auditors will be asked to complete a final exam in order to receive an Approved GFCP Auditor Designation.
