No agencies please.

Our coeliac society is the oldest and largest in the world and we are often seen as leading the way for other coeliac organisations.

With many of our laws originating in Europe, particularly those around labelling and food, working at European level is an important part of our work. We lobby the European Parliament and work with our European colleagues on legislation that affects us all.

As the owner of the worldwide rights to the trademark protected Crossed Grain symbol we are involved in developing gluten-free markets worldwide. Interest in obtaining a license for the use of the symbol is steadily on the increase and we have been approached by gluten-free producers from the Americas, Australia and the Far East.
