The nonprofit Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) is sponsoring Nourished Group’s Gluten-Free B2B Directory, a tool that will allow private brands to find ingredient suppliers that produce gluten-free products.
Launching in January of next year, the Gluten-Free B2B Directory will be the first comprehensive supply chain database for the gluten-free industry. In sponsoring the database, GIG has helped bring on ingredient suppliers certified by GIG’s Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), one of the largest and most-trusted gluten-free certifiers.
“We’re excited to partner with GIG and thank them for their support of this exciting new endeavor in the gluten-free marketplace,” said Jen Cafferty, CEO of Nourished Group. “The GF B2B Directory will provide one-stop convenience for those seeking suppliers, co-packers and other players in the gluten-free space. We want this to turn into the place for gluten-free brands to find everything they need from A-Z, whether that is an ingredient, a co-packer, a recipe developer…the ultimate goal is to have the whole supply chain covered for these companies in an easy-to-find manner.”
Categories in the directory will include batters, breading, flours, sauces, seasonings and more that are certified as gluten-free, allowing private brands to offer inclusive products to their customers.
“GIG is proud to sponsor this comprehensive gluten-free directory that will provide manufacturers with a needed resource for finding products and services used along the gluten-free supply chain,” said Jeanne Reid, marketing manager of GIG. “GIG’s mission is to make life easier for everyone living gluten-free. From our perspective, this includes the gluten-free industry as well. We want to make it simpler for manufacturers to expand the market for gluten-free consumers. This directory will make their operations easier.”
