Naturipe’s Director of Food Safety and Social Responsibility Donna Lynn Browne, spoke on several panels at GLOBALG.A.P. SUMMIT 2018 in Lima, Peru.

“The GLOBALG.A.P. SUMMIT introduces opportunities to educate our industry,” says Donna Lynn Browne. “We are at the point where produce companies grow globally. This summit helps bring together many key decision-makers from all over the world to discuss how the industry can move towards responsibly grown produce.” Browne spoke on the 'Getting Ready for FSMA' panel and the 'Stop Forced Labor' panel.

“Consumers around the world have the right to food that is safe and responsibly grown. We need a common industry response and the GLOBALG.A.P. SUMMIT is the perfect place to discuss our responses on farming and agriculture”, says Kristian Moeller, CEO of GLOBALG.A.P.

Along with other companies, Naturipe and GLOBALG.A.P. aim to better worker conditions and introduce food safety and health initiatives to the forefront of the industry. Naturipe Farms is a GLOBALG.A.P. Supplier Member since 2013.
