GLOBALG.A.P. is a private voluntary certification program, with the international recognition of G.A.P. (Good Agricultural Practices). Its objective is to increase consumer’s trust by showing the farmer’s commitment on food safety and sustainability. This certification is a tool to open and maintain markets.
Nowadays, food health has become a global interest matter where consumers and food distributors are concerned about the chemical residues in food products.
GLOBALG.A.P. comprises mainly the following aspects: product traceability, production techniques (controlled use of chemicals), protection of the environment, health (no chemical, physical or biological contamination) and social issues (adequate working environment).
Among the scopes covered by this protocol, OIA certifies the following production modules: fruits & vegetables and bulk crops.
