About Us- FAQ
May 5, 2022: We regret our Online Store is closed temporarily as a result of ongoing supply chain and labor shortages.
We ship FROZEN on MONDAY so your treats don't sit in a truck over the weekend. Gem City Fine Foods ships via UPS, which calculates your shipping costs at checkout. We want your products to arrive in great condition, but please understand that once the box leaves our facility, it is literally out of our hands, and we cannot guarantee.
Please note: We do NOT ship during holiday weeks.

Recognizing the need for truly delicious quality gluten-free foods, Gem City Fine Foods moved into a dedicated bakery facility in 2012. We now produce exclusively certified gluten-free (and nut-free) gourmet desserts. We offer a wide range of options of exceptional quality and flavor, and are continually evolving our line. In 2018, we removed nuts and soy milk from our products and facility to further accommodate the food allergic dessert lover.
Our products are certified through the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) via the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG). Their testing and our standards exceed the current FDA regulations and international standards of 20 parts per million (PPM). GCFF maintains our products at a gluten-free level that is much higher than international standards. Our facility is nut free as well.
Gem City Fine Foods' unwavering commitment to support the gluten-free and allergen community is fulfilled in part by our excellent manufacturing standards to create only the best in safe high-quality delicious gluten-free products. We participate annually in food safety and gluten-free audits, bringing in a third party to validate and help us ensure that our product meets or exceeds industry standards. This commitment is embraced by every Gem City Fine Foods team member. In turn, we works cooperatively with our suppliers and constituents and utilizes resources wisely and ethically to achieve and maintain sustainable success. We use high-quality ingredients, including only cage-free eggs and synthetic hormone-free dairy ingredients in our dedicated bakery.
Our dedicated team of bakers, kitchen and office assistants, and packaging staff is led by Owner/Operating Member Richard Kent; CEO/ SVP Sales & Marketing Lisa Cox, a 7+-year veteran of the company, and Operations Manager Liam Chenail, who brings an inside knowledge of our company and fresh energy to the team. We enjoy cooking at home and experimenting with new gluten free ideas.
