GLOBALGAP is an internationally recognized set of farm standards dedicated to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP).
Through certification, agricultural producers demonstrate adherence to accepted levels of safety and quality. And consumers can rest assured that the food has been produced sustainably-respecting the health, safety, and welfare of workers, the environment, and in consideration of animal welfare issues.
The GLOBALGAP standard 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 and ensuring a responsible approach to worker health and safety as well as animal welfare.
GLOBALGAP 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.
