Gorton's Seafood's Grilled Fish Given Gluten-Free Stamp Of Approval

  (UNITED STATES, 6/13/2013)

Gorton’s Seafood, has announced that their Grilled Fish line of products have been certified as gluten free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), the leading gluten-free certification program in the world. This third-party endorsement from the GFCO, which is operated by the Gluten Intolerance Group, guarantees that Gorton’s eleven varieties of Grilled Fish products, and the facility where they are produced, are free of gluten such as wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. GFCO-approved products represent unmatched reliability for meeting strict gluten-free standards.

Now you can be assured that Gorton's Grilled Fish, high-quality fish expertly flame-grilled and seasoned in a variety of mouthwatering flavors, is gluten free

Gorton’s offers eleven varieties of Grilled Fish, which are expertly seasoned with real herbs and spices. In 2011, Gorton’s announced that their Grilled Fish products, which include Grilled Tilapia, Grilled Salmon, Grilled Haddock, and Grilled Fillets made from wild-caught Alaska Pollock, were gluten free. Procedures were implemented at the production location to avoid cross-contamination, and ongoing monitoring and testing began.

 

In support of the announcement, Gorton’s teamed up with the Celiac Disease Foundation, sponsoring the organization and sharing the news with their members. The feedback from gluten free consumers continues to be tremendous, and Gorton’s continues to be a proud sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation.

To additionally inform consumers of the gluten free status, Gorton’s eleven Grilled Fish products have been labelled “Gluten Free” since 2011. In 2013, in response to consumer feedback, Gorton’s took the extra step of inviting the GFCO to inspect the manufacturing facility for the Grilled Fish products and received the GFCO certification in May, which fittingly is Celiac Awareness Month.

“At Gorton’s, we’re committed to helping people everywhere enjoy the goodness of great seafood,” says Erol Tan, Marketing Manager for Gorton’s Seafood. “We know how hard it can be for people with celiac or gluten intolerance to find delicious, convenient options and to trust what they buy is gluten free. We hope the GFCO certification helps reassure them that our Grilled Fish meets their dietary needs.”

Gorton’s Grilled Fish products are high-quality fillets of whole fish, expertly flame-grilled and pre-seasoned in a variety of mouth-watering herbs and spices. Grilled Tilapia, Grilled Salmon, Grilled Haddock, and Grilled Fillets made from wild-caught Alaska Pollock have the same delicious flavour that consumers know and love from Gorton’s, without the gluten. These products are naturally full of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids that help promote brain development and heart health.

 

Gorton's provide consumers with innovative frozen seafood products through better independent and chain grocery stores across the United States and Canada
