Benito:

 

I would be concerned suggesting something not knowing your local regulations, if any exist in Kenya, on those topics.  Are there testing requirements to be able to call something GMO free, gluten free, and allergen free?

 

If there wasn't I'm sure something concise would work like: Our products are free of GMOs, gluten, and allergens.

 

Also depending on different countries there are many foods that can be considered an allergen, and as I understand any food with protein in it could be a potential allergen to some people.  By not labeling that you contain allergens aren't you also stating that you don't have allergens?

 

It's hard to give you specific direction not knowing what you make and where it is used.

Not sure from your post whether this is a declaration on a food label for the final consumer..... or a declaration for a potential customer?

 

(as posted above a lot will depend on your local regulation )

 

If it is for a customer....

 

I have attached a nicely set out(IMO) allergen declaration from from United Sugar CorporationAttached File  USC_Allergen_Declaration.pdf   898.89KB   227 downloads

 

Some information I found clarifying the requirements for GMO statements from Kenya (2012)Attached File  gmo labelling.pdf   1.4MB   143 downloads

 

And some 'Gluten Free' labelling guidance from the UK (<20mg/ Kg is the requirement for Gluten free here-no idea of the situation for Kenya!)Attached File  glutenguidance2012.pdf   554.56KB   95 downloads

Hello,

 

Do you have the Allergen Declaration in the excel format?

 

I want to thank you for the shared information, very helpful. I just don't want to re-invent the week if you had by any chance the original file.

 

Thank you in advance.
