Two-Day Conference: GLOBALG.A.P. Takes Your Business to the Next Level with the World’s Leading Standard for Food Safety and Sustainability

Join our two-day TOUR conference organized by Junta Agroempresarial Dominicana (JAD)

The Dominican Republic’s fruit and vegetable sector has experienced a constant growth in production in recent years. The benefits of its geographical location and remarkable climate have enabled the Dominican Republic to position itself as an attractive producer of certain agricultural goods such as bananas, cocoa and oriental vegetables. In terms of local markets as well as for important suppliers in international markets, the Dominican Republic has been recognized as being a suitable partner for the specific needs and wishes of local and international supply stakeholders. Given that Europe and the United States are two of the most important markets, the constant evolution has increased the preference for adopting good agricultural practices and has thus led to responsible and sustainable production within their given environment.

Moreover, this market situation illustrates not only the remarkable and continuous growth of GLOBALG.A.P. certification but also the preference and benefits of good agricultural practices for satisfying local and international demand.

GLOBALG.A.P. is one of the world’s fastest growing and most widely recognized farm-level certification systems for food safety and good agricultural practices. Its role in supporting Dominican Republic’s food security efforts is illustrated by the growth of international demand for certified products such as fruit and vegetables as well as bananas. This growth can have a significant positive impact on the livelihoods of smallholder producers.
