GLOBALG.A.P. develops smart farm assurance solutions together with producers, retailers and other stakeholders from across the food industry. These solutions include standards for safe, socially and environmentally responsible farming practices.


GLOBALG.A.P.’s most widely used flagship standards are the Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) standards for fruit and vegetables, aquaculture, floriculture and livestock, which also form the basis for the GLOBALG.A.P. consumer label: the GGN label for certified, responsible farming.


GLOBALG.A.P. was founded as EUREPGAP in 1997. Two decades later, more than 200,000 producers are under certification in 134 countries. Nearly 140 GLOBALG.A.P. team members around the world are dedicated to the mission of spreading responsible farming practices to ensure safe food for future generations. GLOBALG.A.P. first signed a memorandum of understanding with IAF in 2006, joining IAF as an Association Member in 2010. In 2013, GLOBALG.A.P. and IAF signed an agreement for the inclusion of the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance certification scheme in the IAF MLA.
