GLOBALG.A.P. – Putting food safety and and sustainability on the Map

G.A.P. Stands For Good Agricultural Practices and GLOBALG.A.P. is the worldwide standard that assures it.

GLOBALG.A.P. is a trademark and a set of standards for good agricultural practices (G.A.P.).

We are a global organization with a crucial objective: safe, sustainableagriculture worldwide. We set voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe – and more and more producers, suppliers, and buyers are harmonizing their certification standards to match our Company’s Purpose.

OUR COMPANY´S PURPOSE

Every generation has a right to safe food, and we support farmers to connect them to markets where they can sell their safely and sustainably produced agricultural products by developing and implementing farm assurance systems that are based on facts and recognized across the supply chain.

WELCOME LETTER

KRISTIAN MÖLLER

Vice President / Chief Integrity Officer

The GLOBALG.A.P. Integrity Program plays a major role in setting GLOBALG.A.P. apart from other farm assurance programs: As the first of its kind in food certification, the Integrity Program has been working to ensure consistent quality, ongoing improvement, and optimum transparency in the GLOBALG.A .P. system since 2008. No other standard has such a comprehensive quality control program.

Designed to closely monitor GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies and their activities, the Integrity Program ensures that our certificates are trusted all over the world and that the integrity of the GLOBALG.A.P. standards are maintained over time. The Integrity Program also acts as a feedback mechanism, integrating customer support and complaints management into the range of interconnected activities.

In this report you can find out more about each of the activities within the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrity Program and the pursuits of 2019.


GUY CALLEBAUT

Vice President / Chief Integrity Officer

We set the plan and the GLOBALG.A.P. Team delivered, both in financial and operational terms. I wish to congratulate and thank you all on behalf of the Board. A highlight was certainly the GLOBALG.A.P. SUMMIT in Lima, Peru – a perfect showcase of what our global movement has achieved and is aiming for in the future.

In our role as the GLOBALG.A.P. Board we adopted and continued to promote the strategic direction of the GLOBALG.A.P. partnership. In 2018, we opted towards true globalization.

We expanded our governance structure, and supported investments into enlarging our network of local representatives on all continents. Having representatives working on a local level is vital. As a farmer, I know that the conditions for farming are locally very different and very diverse, a fact made clear by the large number of our professional solutions and services in this report.
Yet, the GLOBALG.A.P. Board is determined to continue the drive for simplification – despite or because of the need for ongoing diversification in the farm and food sector. We depend on you, our active members, to come forward and share with us your innovative approaches for simplifying and scaling up farm assurance as a trust delivering system towards consumers and society.

This is why in 2018 we launched our largest expansion plan in our history so far. On behalf of each of our now more than 100 highly motivated experts operating out of 23 countries, we invite you all to join our efforts. If you share the same mindset by placing the farmer in the center, let us mutually commit to implementing all the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through an open collaboration process. Let your IT talk to us via APIs, tap into our farmer community, and help grow their numbers to reach 100 times 200,000 – 2 million producers under GLOBALG.A.P. certification around the world!
