On the packaging of several products, you can find a 13-digit GLOBALG.A.P. Number (GGN). This number identifies the producer or producer group that has farmed your product. As a consumer, you can use it to verify whether the product is from a certified producer or not in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. Simply enter the number and press ‘submit’. Retailers also use this number for business-to-business traceability to ensure that products–especially fresh fruit and vegetables–come from a certified origin and that the production is safe and sustainable.
