- GlobalG.A.P., as the former European Good Agricultural Practice (EurepGAP) initiated by European Retailers Association, started as a non-official organization in 1997, organized retailers, agricultural product suppliers and producers to develop the standards for agricultural production. In order to better promote the standards of agricultural production, the EurepGAP Secretariat changed the name of EurepGAP to GLOBALG.A.P. at the eighth EurepGAP annual meeting held in Bangkok, Thailand in September 2007; GLOBALG.A.P. is also one of the certification projects recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
At present, GLOBALG.A.P. membership has expanded globally (including to some developing countries). At the end of 2019, more than 210,000 producers (farms and enterprises) have been certified by GLOBALG.A.P. in 135 countries. At the same time, GLOBALG.A.P. standard has also been recognized by more growers and retailers around the world, which puts forward comprehensive requirements on agricultural product planting, traceability in the breeding, food safety, environmental protection, employee health and safety, and livestock welfare. As a result, it strengthened consumers' confidence in GLOBALG.A.P. certified products and made GLOBALG.A.P. a basic requirement for the sustainable development of agricultural production in EU member states.
The scope of GLOBALG.A.P. certification of CQC includes IFA crops (field crops, fruits and vegetables, flowers, tea and plant propagation materials), livestock and poultry (beef cattle, sheep, dairy cows, fattening pigs, poultry), and GRASP additional modules.
