Crossed Grain Logo

The logo gluten free consumers look for and trust

The Crossed Grain logo is the symbol both nationally and internationally recognised by those who need to follow a gluten free diet. The logo gives consumers a quick reference point when shopping and faced with uncertainty on the genuine gluten free status of a product.

All products displaying this logo have been reviewed and approved by Coeliac New Zealand as part of our certification programme and are suitable for a gluten free diet. We ask that you support these manufacturers by purchasing products carrying this logo whenever possible.

The Crossed Grain logo is a certified trademark owned by Coeliac New Zealand for the certification of products produced and licensed in New Zealand, and sold in New Zealand and Australia.
