GFCP Certified Brand Toppits Is First In Canada to Offer Gluten-Free and MSC Certified Breaded Fish

GFCP Certified Brand Toppits Is First In Canada to Offer Gluten-Free and MSC Certified Breaded Fish

(PRWEB) March 10, 2015

The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP), in partnership with the Canadian Celiac Association, is pleased to announce that Toppits Foods Ltd., a Canadian provider of high quality seafood for over 100 years, has launched a GFCP certified line of breaded fish. “Toppits is delighted to introduce Canadians to its delicious gluten-free breaded fish line that is certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Program and is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified as sustainable,” said company owner Heather Gremont. “The number of Canadians choosing to follow a gluten-free lifestyle is increasing and we’re sure that Toppits’ tender flaky fillets will quickly become a family favourite.”

The Gluten-Free Certification Program is a voluntary program designed for manufacturers and brand owners committed to producing safe and reliable gluten-free products. The program combines stringent, risk-based gluten-free requirements with globally recognized food safety management systems, which exceed government requirements in both Canada and the United States. It is verified by an annual robust, third-party facility audit process which ensures continued compliance. Consumers can now shop with confidence across North American and know that the products they are purchasing meet the industry’s strictest gluten-free requirements when they see the GFCP trademark.

“The Canadian Celiac Association believes that all Canadians have the right to safe food, and have designed the Gluten-Free Certification Program to meet these special needs,” states Sue Newell, Operations Manager of the Canadian Celiac Association. “The CCA advocates on behalf of approximately 2,000,000 Canadians suffering from celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, who are frustrated by the uncertainty of identifying the gluten-free products that are essential to their well-being.”

Paul Valder, President of the Allergen Control Group Inc. (ACG), the corporation that manages the GFCP states that “by displaying the GFCP trademark, Toppits provides consumers with a trusted and easily identifiable source of gluten-free products without sacrificing taste. With an ever-growing gluten-free market, Toppits’ Black Pepper Cod, Lightly Seasoned Haddock, and Savoury Lemon Sole offer solutions for those who have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity or are simply looking for a healthier alternative to a wheat-based breaded fish.”

Toppits products are currently available at Sobeys across Canada and in Ontario at the following locations: Toppits Seafood Market, Longo’s, Metro, Lady York Holding Inc, The Garden Basket Food Markets, Monastery Bakery & Delicatessan Ltd., Cousin’s Gourmet Market, Marilu’s Market, Battaglias Market Place, Sharpe’s Food Market, Taste of Country and Farm Boy.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

The Tea Spot announces today the upcoming introduction of its new line of certified organic loose leaf teas in retail-ready gift tins. The Tea Spot’s organic tea collection will symbolically launch on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014.

Market demand for organic tea has been growing steadily over the past 15 years as consumers continue to become more educated about natural and healthy beverage options for the whole family. The Tea Spot’s commitment to offering a variety of loose leaf organic teas supports their customers’ need for more natural and sustainable alternatives. The Tea Spot now has two dozen certified organic teas to meet these rising demands. The loose leaf tea company prides itself on being able to offer a wide variety of traditional teas and herbal teas, as both single-estate teas and blends, all grown without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals.

The wholesale demand for organic teas in retail-ready packaging is what drove the company’s decision to launch this new series of tea tins. “Feedback from customer previews of our organic loose leaf tea tins has been overwhelmingly positive,” stated company CEO Maria Uspenski, “so we’re extending our commitment to organic products by making this new line of tinned teas available for both domestic and international wholesale customers. The teas we chose to package in these striking, yet elegant tins, are our top-selling organic loose leaf teas. They already have a tremendous following and we know they have a proven track record of re-purchase. Many of our most dedicated customers look for organic options above any others, so we’re happy to expand our tea tin collection in that direction.”

In addition, the company is making the organic loose leaf tea tins directly available to retail customers at its online tea store,, both as individual tins and as part of an organic tea set with eight tea tins. Those will be available for sale as of Earth Day 2014. The Tea Spot’s online newsletter subscribers will be privy to an advance sale on the organic tea tins.

The seven loose leaf teas to be launched in The Tea Spot’s branded organic tea tin packages will include:
