MARCH 2015 EDITION


Dear Colleague,

Did you know that more than 100 GLOBALG.A.P. members have received their 10+ year recognition since last year? We greatly value the loyal patronage of our GLOBALG.A.P. members who have always been the backbone of our organization. GLOBALG.A.P. members give us the motivation to pursue our mission for safe and sustainable agriculture. And their partnership and contribution have had an enormous impact on the progress and benefits GLOBALG.A.P. has brought to the agriculture and food industry in the past 15 years. You can view a photo gallery of some of our 10+years GLOBALG.A.P. members receiving their honours at this year’s Fruit Logistica in Berlin. And learn more about how you can be part of our present and future through GLOBALG.A.P. membership.

Like our members, I want to invite you to participate in our Public Consultation for the Crops, Aquaculture and Livestock Standards for the IFA Draft Version 5. The deadline for comments for the Crops and Aquaculture Standards is 5 April 2015! You can find all the draft documents as well as supplementary information here

South Africa’s Freshmark has initiated a localg.a.p. Program for their supply chain. To learn more about localg.a.p. and how it works, check out our localg.a.p. video which is available in more than 10 languages.

Aquaculture  (Shrimp & Fish) and Compound Feed Manufacturing Certification. Read as well how the U.S. Soybean Export Association promotes GLOBALG.A.P. to support shrimp producers in Ecuador.

I just returned from Abu Dhabi where we participated in a successful Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture and reconnected with the Abu Dhabi Government to support safe and sustainable agriculture in the region. We ran a productive working group session with signatories of the Declaration of Abu Dhabi for Global Food Security through Good Agricultural Practices.

Our TOUR 2015 schedule is shaping up, with confirmed stops in Spain and Ecuador.
And for all of you visiting Seafood Expo Global in Brussels, be sure to join our news conference on 22 April at 2.30 p.m. and stop by our booth no. 4026 in Hall 9.

We look forward to seeing you in Brussels.
