Increasing consumer awareness in recent years, products that can be guaranteed to be safe in the food market have started to be preferred. Food safety means; harmless or acceptable levels of unnatural constituents in foodstuffs and food hygiene, as well as direct contact with the environment, community health and welfare of enterprises in the production of food.
Retailers believe that the product they offer to their customers is safe and manufactured in accordance with the sustainability principle, in order to guarantee that the concept of GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) is revealed. EUREPGAP (GLOBALGAP) was launched in 1997 as a non-profit initiative of the Euro-Retailer Produce Working Group(EUREP). EUREPGAP Technical and Standards Committee, aims to ensure the safety of agricultural products and improve food quality from farm to table according to the conditions developed by GAP
The consumer wants to make a commitment that any food purchased from the shelf does not pose a safety risk for food hygiene and is produced through environmentally friendly practices. Consequently, the relevant commitments have been met and the concept of GLOBALGAP Certificate issued by third party independent organizations has emerged.
GLOBALGAP standards are the standards that define the minimum safety requirements of the consumer. The consumer wants to make sure the products they buy;
Not microbiological, physically and chemically harmful,
No harm to the environment and natural balance during production,
Manufactured in accordance with legal requirements,
Ensure that all necessary measures are taken to ensure the health and safety of the persons involved in production.
The basic principles of GLOBALGAP;
