About IFA v6

“IFA  v6 is GLOBALG.A.P.’s flagship standard in a new and improved format,” explains GLOBALG.A.P. Managing Director Elmé Coetzer-Boersma. “It has a simplified structure and language, extended criteria on key issues such as sustainability and animal welfare, and – for the first time – continuous improvement at producer level. Overall, it’s a smarter standard, fit for the future.”

IFA v6 for fruit and vegetables, flowers and ornamentals, hops, and aquaculture is available now, and will become mandatory on 1 January 2024.
