GLOBALG.A.P. counts on Key Account Managers to support its members and the farming sector in the implementation of the good agricultural practices system in local languages. The team of Key Account Managers currently covers more than 40 markets and its work is coordinated by Ignacio Antequera and Ben Horsbrugh. You can find the contact details of your regional KAM here.
