Improve food safety and business performance, and gain access to the world's largest food retailers.

NSF is accredited to certify to GLOBALG.A.P. (ANAB accredited, Global GAP IFA version 6.0), a food safety certification programme for agriculture and aquaculture producers

GLOBALG.A.P. is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards (based on Good Agricultural Practices) for certifying agricultural products around the globe.

The GLOBALG.A.P. food safety standard encompasses all process activities on the farm and is a business-to-business certification. Covering over 130 countries, it is based on reviewing on-farm compliance against three main scopes: crops, livestock and aquaculture. We can provide GLOBALG.A.P. certification in many of the sub-scopes.

Get Independent Verification of Compliance With International Standards

By achieving GLOBALG.A.P. certification with NSF, a food supplier can assure that food has been produced, prepared and handled according to the highest possible standards.

In addition, we can provide the following certifications and add-ons:

  • GLOBALG.A.P. Harmonised Produce Safety Standard (HPSS): The HPSS is designed for fruit and vegetable producers located or selling in the United States. It is based on the U.S. Harmonised GAP standard, benchmarked to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and available in the Americas only.
  • GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA): This globally recognised food safety standard improves farm management practices and compliance with legislation in food safety, protection of the environment, worker health and safety, and animal welfare. These certifications are available:
    • GLOBALG.A.P. IFA Fruits and Vegetables
    • GLOBALG.A.P. IFA Flowers and Ornamentals
    • GLOBALG.A.P. IFA Plant Propagation Material

It lays out strict requirements for handling certified products and segregating certified and non-certified produce in processing.
