Those living in our gluten-free community often find it difficult to eat away from home and many find the entire situation to be both frightening and frustrating. Consumer surveys indicate that despite the increase of available gluten-free options, 16% of US adults choosing to be gluten-free still fear getting sick from their food when they dine out. GIG’s Gluten-Free Food Service Certification Program (GFFS) is designed to help food service establishments of all types (restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals) to provide safe options for gluten-free consumers. GFFS is not only establishing a set of standards and procedures for these food service locations to follow; we are raising consumer confidence in the establishment’s knowledge and handling of their food.
Restaurants and food service locations found in this database have made a commitment to our gluten-free community by meeting the highest standards and being proactive in providing safe food choices for you, the consumer. Facilities that carry the GFFS certification logo have met and adhere to our Best Practices standards and are continuously monitored to assure that these strategies are maintained. As an organization, GIG understands the importance that our certification labels have to gluten-free consumers. These listed, GFFS certified establishments understand this as well and invite you to give them a try and gain your confidence in eating out again.
