The initiative to standardize audit schemes created the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) to assist in moving the produce industry one step closer to global food safety harmonization.  PrimusGFS is a GFSI recognized audit for the certification of agricultural products which includes horticulture, grains & pulses. 

Version 3.1 became mandatory on January 15, 2020. The PrimusGFS normative documents explain the Certification Process to obtain certification. Key documents are the PGFS General Regulations, Questions & Expectations, Interpretation Guidelines and audit checklists.
