About IFA v6 for fruit and vegetables

Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) for fruit and vegetables is a global standard for responsible farming practices at primary production level, covering preharvest activities such as soil and water management to plant protection products and basic postharvest handling. The standard adopts a holistic approach that covers the key topics of food safety, environmental sustainability and biodiversity, workers’ well-being, production processes, and traceability.

GLOBALG.A.P. standards for fruit and vegetables have been operational for over 20 years and are developed through extensive collaboration with stakeholders throughout the sector. IFA is tried, tested, and trusted across the globe, with GLOBALG.A.P. certified production processes covering 4 million hectares of fruit and vegetables production annually.
