The future of tobacco starts with you.
Establishing a higher standard across the industry requires accountability and collaboration at every step of the way. Currently, there are 1,225 GAPC Certified operations.
EVERY DECISION MATTERS.
Recognizing the demand for a comprehensive, and transparent tool to verify compliance with best practice implementation, GAPC developed the certification program with extensive input from its member companies, member-growers, and third-party experts. GAPC’s certification program will increase transparency and foster an environment that promotes sustainability, profitability, fairness, and competition.
Get Started with GAP Connections
Reaching a higher standard begins with your choice to become a GAPC Grower Member and learn about good agricultural practices. From there, you can choose to become a GAPC Certified Grower Member and make a commitment to implement GAPC Certification Standards.
Do you operate your operation with more than one grower?
If you do you may be able to classify the other growers as Associated Growers within the GAPC Certification Program. You and the other growers must meet all the neccessary criteria as Associated Growers to be reviewed by GAPC staff at time of application and verified at time of monitoring activity.
Work with a Consultant?
If so, complete the Consultant Authorization to allow them access to your grower reports and information within GAPC.
