GLOBALG.A.P. – Putting Food Safety and Sustainability on the Map
G.A.P. stands for Good Agricultural Practice – and GLOBALG.A.P. is the worldwide standard that assures it.

A global organization with a crucial objective: safe, sustainable agriculture worldwide. We set voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe–and more and more producers, suppliers and buyers are harmonizing their certification standards to match.

DKG Group is essentially linked to GLOBALG.A.P. (GAP = Good Agricultural Practice), a global organization promoting sustainable agriculture. GLOBALG.A.P. is an initiative launched by retailers to respond to growing consumer concerns about the safety of agricultural products. The organization intends to mitigate these concerns by developing a single standard for the certification of agricultural products provided by farmers and horticultural producers that prioritize eco-friendly entrepreneurship. This standard, which serves as a global reference system for other standards, is suitable for simple and direct application by all parties to the food sector.

Τhe DKG Group used to be a related member of GLOBALG.A.P. Affiliated members play an important role in the GLOBALG.A.P. network, as their extensive experience enables them to make a valuable contribution to the process in which stakeholders will be consulted on further strengthening of the GLOBALG.A.P umbrella.

Finally, the AskMe® translation section of the DKG Group used to be the official translator of GLOBALG.A.P standards. in Greek language for more than 10 years.
