Licence the Crossed Grain Logo through CNZ

The Crossed Grain logo is the certified trademark owned by Coeliac New Zealand and is a symbol nationally and internationally identified by those who need to follow a gluten free diet.

The logo gives consumers a quick reference point when shopping and faced with the uncertainty of hidden gluten in a product without the need to read the nutritional informaion panel (NIP). With consumer demand for gluten free products increasing in NZ by an estimated 26% annually, there has never been such an important time to ensure that your products stand out in the crowd.

Licence Fee

The use of the Crossed Grain Logo is operated via a licence agreement, renewable on an annual basis. The annual licence fee for the use of the logo varies according to the total gross annual sales turnover of the gluten free products which are to be certified. We endeavour to offer realistic licence fee prices for all sizes and types of food manufacturers.
