WHO: Today, GFREEK.COM has over 30 active members helping create new award categories and writing articles for the Gluten-Free Buyers Guide. GFREEK.COM started as a small family business based on a simple need in the market place. Josh and Jayme Schieffer (Founders) are parents of a child that has Celiac Disease. After their son’s diagnosis they gutted the fridge and pantry of “most” gluten containing products and went to the health food store to re-stock. Josh and Jayme soon realized how expensive some of the food was and how awful it tasted. On the other hand, some products tasted great and cost little to no more than their gluten containing counterparts. Josh and Jayme couldn’t find a single resource containing unbiased opinions about gluten free products and services so they developed GFREEK.COM. Josh has now been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and is on a mission to make life easier for those who get diagnosed and/or are intolerant to gluten.
What: GFREEK.COM is a website that hosts the Annual Gluten Free Awards (GFA). Each year, people that consume or use gluten-free products and services are able to vote on their favorites. The results will then be posted onto the website for everybody to use. The 4th Annual Gluten Free Award winners and nominees will also be placed in the Gltuen-Free Buyers Guide. The purpose is to provide quick and easy information to two separate parties:
· The consumer.
· Distributors, and Retailers.
Why: Josh and Jayme realized quickly that spending $7.00 on a box of cookies and tossing them in the trash after one bite wasn’t the way to go. They didn’t have the health or financial freedom to experiment with the new food products and services. They wanted good tasting gluten-free food and a reasonable cost without the added frustration. The GFA will be the quickest way to identify that a product or service has met the quality standards set out by the Celiac and Gluten Intolerant population.
How: Nominations are made through way of sponsorships. The
gluten-free community then votes until mid-December. The final results
are then posted at GFREEK.COM and in the Annual Gluten Free Buyers Guide at the beginning of each New Year.
Bottom Line: At the start of each year we highlight the best gluten-free products, services, and organizations with the help of the Annual Gluten-Free Members, Sponsors and the gluten-free community. You can trust that the annual nominees and winners have the best gluten free products on the market.
