From Farmer's Market to Supermarket!
If you are a smaller-scale or emerging business in the agriculture world and are looking for ways to incorporate a G.A.P. program that will attract some serious attention from the market, we have a solution for you!
localg.a.p. has been designed by GLOBALG.A.P. to be used as a capacity-building tool, or to be applied as a local standard for agricultural supply chains especially in developing economies and emerging markets. Retailers have limited sourcing possibilities, since producers in emerging markets may not yet formally comply with food safety and good agricultural production requirements, or may be unable to achieve GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) certification immediately. localg.a.p. is a ground-breaking program to get folks started on the process of working with the retailers they are comfortable with while keeping options available to advance to next levels of productivity!
localg.a.p. is intended to help producers adopt good agricultural practices that can improve the efficiency of farm management, cut exposure to food safety risks, and comply with legislation on food safety. Through these steps, producers can gain increased access to local and regional markets.
localg.a.p. is also a key building block for producers who need GLOBALG.A.P. IFA certification to access demanding markets. With this tool, buyers will be able to increase their sourcing possibilities by developing a network of reliable producers that are already linked to an internationally recognized standard – namely, GLOBALG.A.P. IFA.
