The Crossed Grain symbol is nationally and internationally recognised by those who need to follow a gluten-free diet as it is promoted by coeliac organisations worldwide.
The symbol is synonymous with gluten-free and represents a sign of safety and integrity.
The symbol has proven to provide consumers a quick reference point when out shopping and faced with the uncertainty on the gluten-free status of a product.
European Licensing System (ELS)
This system represents an agreed approach to licensing the Crossed Grain Symbol across Europe to common standards and allows all member societies to issue the Crossed Grain license to producers whose head offices are located in their country.
The Coeliac Society of Ireland is now in a position to offer a contract for the licensing of the crossed grain symbol to manufacturers in Ireland.
To use the Crossed Grain symbol your products must meet a range of criteria to ensure that they are gluten-free, both in terms of the ingredients and the production process.
