A Customer Centric Lens for Good Agricultural Practices

This resource appears in:

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) addresses a wide variety of farm production and post-harvest practices that contribute to food safety, food quality and environmental stewardship. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has been a key influencer and promoter of GAP since the early 2000s. More recently, countries are defining their own GAP standards and regulations even as commercial firms are incorporating GAP into their supply chains and procurement decisions, encouraging their suppliers to conform to GAP certifications such as GLOBALG.A.P, BRCGS food safety and International Featured Standard (IFS).
