Here are the latest updates from New Zealand GAP

NZGAP Mutual Recognition

This November 2018, NZGAP has launched a new programme to recognise GLOBALG.A.P. Certification under the new NZGAP "Mutual Recognition" Certification Policy. 

Growers can achieve NZGAP certification via their GLOBALG.A.P. certification because of NZGAP’s GLOBALG.A.P. benchmarked scheme (NZGAP GLOBALG.A.P. Equivalent).

NZGAP certification facilitates more effective traceability in the local market (using the NZGAP number), provides a pathway to register under the Food Act 2014, and enables growers to access NZGAP’s many other services and add-ons. Some local markets require the NZGAP number on certain prepacked products from 1 December onwards, so please register now to continue supplying those markets.
