Why Using a Dedicated Gluten Free Facility is a Good Idea for Your Production

If you are a manufacturer of gluten free products, there are many decisions you need to make that can help or contribute to your company’s success. One of the main questions that come up, whether you’re new to the game or you’ve been at it for a while, is if you should manufacture your product in a dedicated gluten free facility or a shared facility. As a company with 10+ years of expertise making gluten free products, here are our views on the Top 3 Dangers when using a shared facility for your gluten free product:

Reduce Risk of Cross-Contamination

Products are more at risk in shared facilities. Even if they are certified gluten free, that doesn’t guarantee that equipment was cleaned properly. Companies typically label their products that the food was made in a facility that processes gluten products. This can discourage purchase by some customers, particularly those with celiac disease.

Save on Cost & Turn Around Time

Shared facilities need to transition from gluten to gluten free products. These transitions can make production more expensive due to the cleaning of lines, and taking up valuable production time. Without cleaning the lines appropriately you run the risk of cross-contamination, which decreases revenue if you need to recall a product.

Don’t Risk Compromising Your Products or Your Customers Trust

If contamination occurs with the product, if someone gets sick, or if a recall happens, it can negatively affect your brand. Keeping your brand intact through a uncompromised product is your first line of defense.

If you want additional reasons to use a dedicated facility, there really is just one: peace of mind. There is no risk of cross-contamination, no unseen costs, and no risk to your brand. You have every assurance that your product remains gluten free.
