The gluten-free product market is hot and one of the fastest growing consumer life and health choice markets. The key to being successful in this market is consumer confidence in products and manufacturing. In a recent survey of over 5000 consumers, over 80% said they buy products marked gluten-free (GF) over similar products. At the same time, 65% said they have little trust in manufacturing. Ninety-seven% of those polled are brand loyal.
Gluten-free certification gives consumers confidence and trust in a product. Although gluten-free certification is just 10 years old in North America, 76% of the consumers polled said they look for gluten-free certification on packages.
