Global G.A.P. is internationally recognized as the top quality and sustainability standard for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).
The GLOBAL G.A.P. has been operating in aquaculture for several years as part of a global food certification system, developed and operated by Food PLUS GmbH in Germany.
This standard ensures that fish are grown responsibly in environmentally friendly conditions. It fully covers the entire production chain, from broodstock, breeding, fishing, fish processing and packaging. It consists of more than 200 prerequisites concerning food quality and safety, livestock welfare, worker safety, and care for the environment and the ecosystem.
The objectives of this quality standard are to establish best practices within an integrated evaluation system, in order to ensure cooperation with accredited certification bodies and GLOBALG.A.P. accredited auditors and inspectors, as well as ensure comparability and transparency across the supply chain, and reduce costs and time for suppliers and retailers.
