About the GGN Label

The GGN label is GLOBALG.A.P.’s consumer label. It stands for certified, responsible farming and transparency.

Found on both packed and loose products, the GGN label exists to offer consumers consistent, relevant assurance and orientation throughout the store. It does so by confirming that the products were farmed in line with certified, responsible farming practices that cover food safety, environmental protection, animal welfare, social responsibility, and supply chain transparency. The GGN label may be applied to:

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Farmed seafood and algae 
  • Flowers and plants

More than just a label

The GGN label logo is the face of a transparent system that builds trust.   

The GGN label provides transparency through unique 13-digit numbers that are linked to members of the supply chain with GLOBALG.A.P. certification.
GLOBALG.A.P. Numbers (GGNs) are linked to producers, and Chain of Custody (CoC) Numbers are linked to other businesses such as packers or processors. These numbers are printed onto the packaging of products with the GGN label, or shown on price tags for loose products. When consumers find a GGN or a CoC Number on their product, they can enter it into the search system on the GGN label portal to find a profile for the corresponding farm or business.   

This system helps showcase the businesses who practice and support responsible farming. In turn, this level of transparency encourages consumers to trust the GGN label and brands that feature it.  

The GGN label portal has a consumer-friendly front end – featuring farm profiles, FAQ, and news articles – and an efficient management system on the back end for GGN label licensees.
