Golden standard

These European supermarkets impose the GLOBALG.A.P protocol as a basic standard with the aim of keeping consumer confidence with regard to food safety. The standard ensures harmonised regulations for the cultivation of products. After implementation, the grower has a system to demonstrate that its products have been produced responsibly. In addition to food safety, this international production standard for cultivation also pays attention to:

  • Minimising environmental pollution;
  • Reducing the use of plant production products;
  • More efficient use of natural resources;
  • Attention to employee health, safety, and wellbeing;
  • Conservation and enhancement of nearby vegetation and wildlife.
