What is Plant Based Certified?

Whether consumers are looking to minimize animal products or increase plant-based products in their diets because of dietary choice, health reasons, concern for the environment, or a host of other lifestyle possibilities, it is important that they feel confident that there are no unspecified animal derived ingredients in the foods they choose. Global Plant Based Certified is that guarantee. In order to be certified to the Global Plant Based Certified standard, companies must demonstrate that every ingredient used in products carrying the GPBC logo has met the criteria set out in the GPBC standard (i.e. plant, plant-derived, or neutral)  and that in those facilities that may also be preparing non- GPBC products that the facilities were properly cleaned after any product runs containing animal derivatives and / or animal derived ingredients.
