Certifications and Food Safety

We are certified organic by Ecocert Canada. By using organic ingredients, we stay away from all kinds of pesticides, herbicides and chemicals that are harmful to the human body and the environment.   Why are a few of the products not certified 100% organic? Some of the ingredients in certain products are not certified organic. They come from native harvests thus ensuring the absence of any genetically modified organisms. Or, they come from small farmers that are not certified organic yet.

We are certified GFCO (Gluten Free certification organization).
We do not carry any wheat, rye, barley or oats neither in our product line nor our warehouse.
Canadian and U.S. laws require that gluten free products contain less than 20ppm (parts per million) of traces of gluten. We do regular preventive laboratory tests to ensure that each ingredient used in our products do not exceed that limit.

Traces of gluten in gluten free certified food products
Limits set by Canadian & U.S. laws   Less than 20 ppm (parts per million)
Ingredients used by GoGo Quinoa   Less than 10 ppm
Our products do not contain any animal or dairy ingredients. We do not use any animal source ingredients such as milk, eggs, meat or fish.



Some of the products are certified Kosher by the Grand Rabbinate of Quebec.

All the products that are prepared/mixed in our facility in St Laurent, Quebec bear the logo of Aliments du Québec.

We are proud to provide you with fresh products of the highest quality. Many of our products have been certified GMO Free by the NON GMO Project, and we are currently working on obtaining the certification for our other products.

We are certified HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) which is a systematic preventive approach in order to provide food safety during the production process from any biological, chemical and physical hazards. Our HACCP system is applied on all levels, from the production process to packaging and distribution.
This system is recommended by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the United Nations International standards organization for food safety.

About Allergens

Allergens
We do not do preventive tests for every kind of allergen but our production facility and warehouse do not carry any gluten, nuts, peanuts, almonds, dairy products, soy, sesame, seafood or meat ingredients.

Peanut Free
Although we do not carry peanuts in our facility, we are in the process of implementing a new preventive test system in order to detect traces of peanuts. Up to now, we have the Crunchies cinnamon, Crunchies original, Crunchies chocolate and the Quinoa Cocoa Puffs bearing the peanut free logo.
