Group Certification: How to Provide Efficient and Effective Assurance of Good Agricultural Practices to Grower Groups, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certification covering food safety is a retailer requirement of fruit and vegetable producers in the USA and beyond. Historically, GAP certification has been out of reach for many small and mid-sized farms, largely because of price. Group certification is an alternative offered by multiple certification programs, wherein grower groups can share the certification cost by pooling together. However, some wonder how a certification that does not require annual external audits of every farm can provide adequate assurance.
