THE GGN LABEL – Making certified, responsible farming visible

For many people, doing the weekly or daily grocery shopping is a complicated task. The huge variety of consumer labels for different product types can be overwhelming, even for the most conscious shopper.
That’s why GLOBALG.A.P. created a cross-category consumer label to offer consistent, consumer-relevant assurance and orientation throughout the store.

The GGN label is for fruit and vegetables, farmed seafood and algae, flowers and plants.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

We believe you have the right to know where your food and plants come from and how they were produced. We promote the dialog between producers and consumers in order to lay a foundation for modern, conscious, and responsible production.

The GGN label stands for certified, responsible farming and transparency.

How our transparent system can build trust:

  1. For each farming and/or trader business, look for the unique number printed on the product (GGN or CoC Number).
  2. Enter the number at ggn.org.
  3. Discover the companies behind the label via farm/trader profiles.

The GGN label portal has a consumer-friendly front end – featuring farm profiles, FAQ, and news articles – and an efficient management system on the back end for GGN label licensees.

GETTING STARTED WITH THE GGN LABEL

GGN label licenses

The entity which legally owns (or has bindingly ordered) the product at the time the GGN label visual elements are applied to the product packaging requires a GGN label license. This entity is called the licensee.

Who is the licensee?

The licensee could be a producer, trader, processor or packer, or a retailer or restaurant chain operator selling loose products to consumers (e.g., loose apples or fresh fish).

First steps

  • If you are not the potential licensee, identify who is and encourage them to apply for the license.
  • If you are a potential licensee, create an account on the GGN label portal (ggn.org) to begin your application.

Important: First check that the product you wish to label fulfills the requirements mentioned above.
