GLNC certification is available for use on labels for core whole grain, high fibre grain and legume foods that are healthier choices within their category. GLNC certification sits outside the Code but is available to manufacturers who would like to use the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification statement on labels.
To carry GLNC certification a product must meet all of the following criteria:
- Be a core food
- Be a healthier choice in category (nutrient criteria apply)
- Whole grain foods must contain at least 16 grams whole grain per serve
- Legume foods must contain at least 75 grams of legumes per serve
If a Registered User wishes to include the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification in any label, it must obtain the Code Manager’s prior written approval of the use of the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification on that label.
Approval from the Code Manager is not required for labels carrying the whole grain ingredient content claims or Daily Target Intake statement without the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification.
For more information in regards to GLNC certification and use of GLNC Logo, including product requirements and fees contact the Code Manager via email@example.com or 9394 8661.
Registered Users must pay a fee for use of the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification to cover the costs of administrating the Code. Details of current fees are available here.
Registered Users do not pay a fee for the use of the whole grain ingredient content claims or Daily Target Intake statement alone without the use of the GLNC logo &/or GLNC certification.
