Inventure Foods Receives Gluten-Free Certification For Its Boulder Canyon Products And Manufacturing Facilities

PHOENIX, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inventure Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAK), a leading specialty food marketer and manufacturer, has received certification from the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) for its Boulder Canyon™ Natural Foods products and manufacturing facilities in Bluffton, Ind. and Goodyear, Ariz.

The Bluffton plant, located at 705 West Dustman Rd., produces snack chips for the company-owned Boulder Canyon brand, in addition to salty snacks under the T.G.I. Friday's®, Nathan's Famous® and Vidalia Brands® licensed brands. Inventure's Goodyear plant, located at 3500 South La Cometa, is a state-of-the-art kettle-cooked potato chip facility, producing potato chips under the Boulder Canyon, Poore Brothers® and Bob's Texas Style® brand names.

All Boulder Canyon products will carry the certified Gluten-Free logo going forward.  

The Auburn, Wash.-based GFCO is considered the leading global gluten-free certification program. The strict certification process includes periodic gluten testing of the manufacturing facility, regular plant inspections by a GFCO contracted auditor and random product testing in the marketplace. Products carrying the GF logo meet similarly strict gluten-free standards constituted by the GFCO. For a complete list of GFCO certified companies and products, please visit www.gfco.org.

Sales of certified gluten-free products in the chips, pretzel and snack category grew 54 percent from 2010-2011 and sales of the overall gluten-free food category grew 27 percent from 2009-2011*. World-leading market research group, Mintel®, estimates the gluten-free food category will reach $8 billion in 2013**.

"We continue to place the utmost importance on improving our food safety and manufacturing capabilities, said Laura Setzfand, vice president of marketing for Boulder Canyon. "The growth in the gluten-free food category is a direct result of consumers' demand for better-for-you products. Boulder Canyon offers consumers a wide range of better-for-you snacks that will now also carry the GFCO certification."
