What is GLOBALG.A.P.?

Founded in 1997, GLOBALG.A.P. is a brand that offers smart farm assurance solutions for agriculture certification, aquaculture, and floriculture. GLOBALG.A.P. sets standards to promote safer and more environmentally friendly farming practices in over 130 countries across the globe.

GLOBALG.A.P. certification

The GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) certification programme allows you to reach new markets and grow your business globally while assuring consumers that your production and management practices meet industry-recognised requirements.

The certification programme includes a third-party auditing process. Preferred by Nature is accredited by IOAS, with contract number 85, to globally perform farm product certifications under the GLOBALG.A.P. General Regulations v6 - Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) v6 Standard. Please refer to www.ioas.org/accreditation/accredited-bodies/ for more information. 

We offer the services in conjunction with other agricultural services under well-recognised programmes and schemes such as the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture, the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT), the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), and the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP). 

The Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) is the most widely used GLOBALG.A.P. standard, covering the major aspects of primary production, from preharvest to postharvest handling. 

The IFA V6 Standard is available for fruits and vegetables, flowers and ornamentals and hops, covering important topics:

  • Traceability

  • Food Safety

  • Worker’s well-being

  • Biodiversity and habitats

  • Energy Efficiency

  • Waste management

  • Fertilisers and bio-stimulants

  • Water management

  • Integrated pest management

  • Plant protection products
