QUALITY STANDARDS CERTIFICATIONs
No other branch has been so highly challenged by globalisation as that of primary food production. GLOBALG.A.P. is now established on the global market as being the reference standard for good agricultural practice (G.A.P.). The main issues covered by GLOBALG.A.P. are related to food safety and are based on consumer expectations.
