Knowing the Organizations Helping to Protect Us – Part 2 of 4

April 27th, 2011

Today’s post is by Mark Davis; Vice President of Operations and CTO at SafeSourcing. Mark asks "How do you leverage the work from organizations helping to protect the planet and its people?"

In Monday’s blog we talked about how many organizations are out there working very hard to make sure that the world and its inhabitants are safer.
In the rest of this week’s posts we would like to take some time and highlight a few of the groups that work so hard to protect us, groups you may or may not been familiar with but that deserve the attention and praise of the business world.

The Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) “provides an independent service to supervise gluten-free food production according to a consistent, defined, science-based standard that is confirmed by field inspections, in order to achieve heightened consumer confidence and safety. “ (

Gluten-free diets are very common for treating diseases of the intestine, connective tissues, and other sensitivities and allergies of the protein, gluten.  The GFCO works with auditors to certify that are manufactured to the guidelines to ensure a product is gluten-free and safe for those with the ailments above.  Working with manufactures such as Snyder’s and retailers such as Trader Joes, the GFCO works hard to improve the products consumed by those on gluten-free diets.

For more information on the certified Gluten-Free go to our website or for a list of Certified Gluten-Free products go to the GFCO’s site at
