GAP Connections Certification Standards

GAPC Grower Certification Programs are voluntary programs that recognizes growers for their excellence in the areas of Crop, Environment, and Labor practices. GAPC Certification Standards are the measurable standards associated with one of the voluntary GAPC Certification Program which distinguishes those growers that commit to the adoption of agricultural standards and practices which produce a quality crop while protecting, sustaining, or enhancing the environment, ensuring the safety and rights of farm laborers.

GAPC Certification Standards do not replace or supersede contract requirements between growers and purchasing companies but instead, offer the industry a set of guiding principles that identify and promote best practices for on-farm production and post-production processes.                                                                                                                                                                                                

EVERY DECISION MATTERS. 

HOW YOU GROW MATTERS. HOW YOU WORK MATTERS.
