The challenge of globalising markets is nowhere greater than in the primary food sector. GLOBALG.A.P (formerly known as EUREPG.A.P) has established itself as a key reference for Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P.) in the global market place, by translating consumer requirements into agricultural production in a rapidly growing list of countries – currently more than 100 on every continent.
GLOBALG.A.P is a pre-farm-gate standard, which means that the certificate covers the process of the certified product from farm inputs like feed or seedlings and all the farming activities until the product leaves the farm. GLOBALG.A.P is a business-to-business label and is therefore not directly visible to consumers.
GLOBALG.A.P certification is carried out by more than 100 independent and accredited certification bodies in more than 100 countries. It is open to all producers worldwide.
GLOBALG.A.P includes annual inspections of the producers and additional unannounced inspections.
GLOBALG.A.P consists of a set of normative documents. These documents cover the GLOBALG.A.P General Regulations, the GLOBALG.A.P Control Points and Compliance Criteria and the GLOBALG.A.P Checklist.
GLOBALG.A.P is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe. The aim is to establish ONE standard for Good Agricultural Practice (G.A.P.) with different product applications capable of fitting to the whole of global agriculture.
