G.A.P. stands for Good Agricultural Practice – and GLOBALG.A.P. is the worldwide standard that assures it.
We’re a global organization with a crucial objective: safe, sustainable agriculture worldwide.
We set voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe–and more and more producers, suppliers and buyers are harmonizing their certification standards to match.
GLOBALG.A.P. members create private sector incentives for agricultural producers worldwide to adopt safe and sustainable practices to make this world a better place to live in for our children.
In 1994, PrimusLabs began its foray into auditing by developing G.A.P. manuals, and in 1996, the company became an early force in the produce industry for field level food safety plans. It was the first American company to offer auditing for farms and harvest crews and became an early and strong advocate for complete programs for farms and ranches.
Over the next few years, PrimusLabs began offering food industry plans, and GMP audits and consultation for processing plants, cooling and cold storage facilities, packing sheds, terminal market and distribution centers. These audits were known as PrimusLabs Standard audits.
PrimusLabs: Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) are guidelines established that ensure that field operations account for potential food safety issues. The PrimusLabs GAP program addresses the food safety topics of site selection, adjacent land use, fertilizer usage, water sourcing and usage, pest control and pesticide monitoring, harvesting practices (including worker hygiene, packaging storage, field sanitation and product transportation) and food defense. Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are developed and incorporated into the GAP program, providing guidance with respect to potential points for contamination and preventative or corrective measures to mitigate their effects.
CertiClean is a performance-based program.
Companies certified to the CertiClean standard must demonstrate compliance to a rigorous HACCP Food Safety Management plan, including quarterly maintenance audits, employee training, and sampling and testing consistent with the relevant crop/food risk level.
Such operations must also demonstrate that they meet or exceed applicable local food safety and sanitation-related governmental regulations.
Certified companies receive a Certificate of Achievement, and in addition, are listed in the SCS Supplier Database. Certified suppliers are also entitled to use the CertiClean logo on secondary packaging so wholesale and retail customers can readily identify their products.
