What is GLOBALG.A.P.? And, what is the GGN Label?

GLOBALG.A.P. is a business-to-business standard for safe and sustainable food production.

GLOBALG.A.P. globally connects farmers and brand owners in the production and marketing of safe food to provide reassurance for consumers. The GLOBALG.A.P. Standard sets very strict criteria for Good Agricultural Practices that farmers must comply with if they want to sell their products to major retailers around the world. And retailers rely on GLOBALG.A.P. Certification to ensure that the products they sell to their consumers can be traced back to a certified farm or production facility.

The GGN Label represents a GLOBALG.A.P. certified production process of aquaculture as well as flowers and ornamental plants and provides guidance to consumers in their day-to-day grocery shopping. For every product that bears the GGN logo, consumers can check where, say, the salmon they just bought, was produced. Using the 13-digit number on the packaging, they can look up the origin of the product and what the producer’s farm looks like while they are still at the store.

How can I identify certified products?
The GLOBALG.A.P. Standard is a business-to-business certificate and not a consumer label. However, consumers can still verify whether the products they buy are GLOBALG.A.P. certified.
