The rigour of BRCGS Gluten-free certification has won the endorsement of a broad network of national and regional associations around the world. One of which is ACELMEX A.C. an independent not-for-profit charity, that supports consumers suffering from celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity in Mexico and Latin America.

For more than 17 years, ACELMEX A.C. has provided information on celiac disease and gluten-free diets, advised on social and educational problems, and promoted multiple activities for the benefit of this sector. Members depend on the association to provide funding for critical research on celiac disease, to work with health professionals to improve diagnosis and to advocate for the increased availability of innovative, safe and reliable gluten-free foods.

The ACELMEX trademark provides clarity for consumers in the Mexican and wider Latin American marketplace. It is the leading trademark in the region with strong consumer recognition which allows the easy identification of gluten-free foods and products.

Manufacturers that are certificated against the BRCGS Gluten-Free Global Standard can use the ACELMEX gluten-free trademark on products destined for sale in the region.

Speaking about the launch of the BRCGS Global Standard Gluten-Free Issue 4, Cecilia Fonolla Belforte, President of ACELMEX A.C. said: “Congratulations to BRCGS on the launch of Issue 4! We have nothing but deep gratitude for BRCGS’ invaluable contribution to the growth and strengthening of the issue of safety in gluten-free food.

The dedication and commitment BRCGS has shown in this area has had a significant impact on our community and, therefore, on the quality of life of those who must follow a gluten-free diet. Food safety is a primary concern for us and BRCGS has played a critical role in providing services that meet the highest gluten-free certification standards.

We want to express our gratitude for the continued support from BRCGS in raising awareness about celiac disease and the needs of those living with this condition. The commitment to education and the dissemination of accurate information has been fundamental in raising awareness in society about the importance of offering safe and gluten-free options.

Thank you for your invaluable contribution and for being a vital ally in promoting a safe gluten-free diet.”
