The GLOBALG.A.P. Produce Handling Assurance (PHA) standard provides stand-alone food safety and traceability certification of post-harvest activities, such as cooling, packing, re-packing, handling, and storage of crops for human consumption.
The PHA standard may be used in conjunction with the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance standard for Fruit and Vegetables, Combinable Crops, Hops, or with the Harmonized Produce Safety Standard. It can be combined with these GLOBALG.A.P. field audits to provide a complete certification option for a producer with on-farm packing or other post-harvest activities.
Available as a stand-alone post-harvest facility certification or can be combined with either GLOBALG.A.P. field certification:
• Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA)
• Harmonized Produce Safety Standard (HPSS)
• Used by multi-site operations
• Used by stand-alone packing houses, cold storages and more
