GLOBALG.A.P is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards for the certification of production processes of agricultural (including aquaculture) products around the globe.
The GLOBALG.A.P standard is primarily designed to reassure consumers about how food is produced on the farm by minimising detrimental environmental impacts of farming operations, reducing the use of chemical inputs and ensuring a responsible approach to worker health and safety as well as animal welfare.
GLOBALG.A.P serves as a practical manual for Good Agricultural Practice (G.A.P.) anywhere in the world. The basis is an equal partnership of agricultural producers and retailers who wish to establish efficient certification standards and procedures.
The GLOBALG.A.P website is a comprehensive knowledge base for all interested parties: producers, suppliers, retailers, journalists and consumers. With its clear and easy navigation it incorporates exhaustive information on the GLOBALG.A.P standard and its modules and applications.
