localg.a.p. - The Stepping Stone to Safe and Sustainable Agriculture
Consumers worldwide are increasingly demanding quality foods, produced safely and sustainably. Retailers around the world are rising to meet the challenge by demanding certification from their producers. But they face a tricky situation when working with emerging producers who may not be able to achieve GLOBALG.A.P. Certification. And producers without certification for their products have difficulties accessing local and regional markets.
Our solution: localg.a.p. This innovative product is the stepping stone toward certification. A cost-effective solution for emerging markets, it helps producers gain gradual recognition by providing an entry level to GLOBALG.A.P. Certification.
And it helps retailers gain access to quality foods, support their local and regional producers, and promote Good Agricultural Practice.
The localg.a.p. program is a tool that offers GLOBALG.A.P. retail and food service members the opportunity to initiate a food safety program in order to prepare their suppliers for GLOBALG.A.P. Certification.
GLOBALG.A.P. began the localg.a.p. program in the USA, where the customized solution is called localg.a.p. North America.
