GLOBAL.G.A.P is a single standard that identifies safe production methods, responsible use of resources and the welfare of employees. GLOBAL.G.A.P is now recognized in over 100 countries. The GLOBAL.G.A.P. Fruit & Vegetables Standard covers all stages of production, from pre-harvest activities such as soil management and plant protection product application to post-harvest produce handling, packing and storing.
GLOBAL.G.A.P is primarily designed to reassure consumers about how food is produced on the farm by:
- Minimizing detrimental environmental impacts of farming operations
- Reducing the use of chemical inputs
- Ensuring a responsible approach to workers’ health, safety and animal welfare
This workshop is designed to provide you with an excellent overview of the requirements of GLOBALG.A.P so that you can implement GLOBALG.A.P on your farming establishment
