Produce Handling Standard Focus Group (PHS FG)

GLOBALG.A.P. is developing a new standard for packhouses applicable in North America (USA, Canada, Mexico) and select international facilities.  This standard will satisfy a clear need for an integrated GLOBALG.A.P. solution that can extend to independent packhouses. We are aiming for a Q1 2018 launch.  The new standard will not apply to processing.

The standards development process follows:

  1. Focus Group: November/December 2017
  2. Public consultation: December 2017/January 2018
  3. Field trials: January/February 2018
  4. Standard publication and implementation: March 2018
  5. Application for GFSI recognition (March 2018)
