A Guide to the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) Certification Process

HORT-252NP (HORT-285NP) The increasing incidence of foodborne illness in fresh produce in the United States has resulted in a demand for food safety assurance by minimizing the risks of microbial hazards. While there is no way to completely eliminate all of the potential risks, there are many food safety practices growers and food handlers can implement beginning at the farm level and throughout the supply chain (to the market-place). These practices relate to water quality; soil amendments; management of wildlife, pests and livestock; worker health and hygiene; equipment and facilities; general handling; and traceability of the product. 8.5x11 Color DS 24# stapled set (upper left)\12\PWRVMRSB201154.png
