GLOBALG.A.P. Community Newsletter Logo  


Dear Colleague,

Greetings from Cologne!

With almost 10,000 additional producers achieving certification, a terrific SUMMIT 2014 in Abu Dhabi, the establishment of several projects and collaborations with key players in the industry, and looking at the improvement rate assessed by our unique Certification Integrity Program, we can safely say that 2014 was a successful year for GLOBALG.A.P.

2015 kicks off with preparations for our annual presence at Fruit Logistica in Berlin. If you’re heading to Berlin next month, be sure to join our News Conference on 5 February, 12-1pm, in Room B at the Press Center in Hall 6.3. This will be followed by our traditional Member Reception at our booth No. A-06.

Our public consultation of the next version of the GLOBALG.A.P. IFA Standards is happening right now! Please use your opportunity to participate and share with us your comments and improvement recommendations. You can download the documents here and send us your comments to

The public consultation for our new Responsible Operations Standard for Compound Feed Manufacturers is also now open and the deadline for your comments is 15 February 2015. The document is available here and you can send us your comments to

This month’s newsletter covers news from our member UNIVEG on how they link up with the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. And INTACT joining us as a new GLOBALG.A.P. Associate Member reflects the importance of IT, traceability and Chain of Custody, both at this year’s Fruit Logistica and in 2015!

Hope to see you in Berlin!

Best regards,
Kristian Moeller
