Global G.A.P. STANDARDS FOR GOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES
GLOBALG.A.P. is an international standard for Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) that covers the production, processing, packaging, and storage of agricultural products.
The standard is designed to ensure that food is produced in a safe, sustainable, and responsible manner.
GLOBALG.A.P. is based on the following principles:
- Food safety: GLOBALG.A.P. requires organizations to implement measures to ensure that food is safe for human consumption.
- Sustainability: GLOBALG.A.P. requires organizations to implement measures to protect the environment and resources.
- Responsibility: GLOBALG.A.P. requires organizations to implement measures to respect workers’ rights and the community.
GLOBALG.A.P. is a voluntary standard, but it is becoming increasingly important for organizations that want to sell their products to retailers and other businesses that require GLOBALG.A.P. certification.
Here are some of the benefits of implementing GLOBALG.A.P.:
- Improved food safety: GLOBALG.A.P. can help organizations improve food safety by implementing measures to prevent foodborne illness.
