GlobalG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Standard Version 5.1 (IFAV5.1)
Membership Details for GlobalG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Standard Version 5.1
The GLOBALG.A.P. Standards set a benchmark for animal welfare, environmental care, food safety and legal compliance in the aquaculture sector. Version 5.1 of the standard comes after a four year period of research and consultation and covers an extremely diverse range of fish, crustaceans and molluscs as well as hatchery-based farmed species.
Being GlobalG.A.P. IFAV5.1 approved brings with it a number of benefits.
Benefits can include:
- Helps you meet increasing retailer demands.
- Reassures consumers and buyers of a products quality.
- Helps with product traceability.
- Differentiates yourself from competitors.
- Proves to consumers that you care about fish welfare and the environment.
The latest standards, though stringent, have been designed to be more understandable in an effort to ease their use and increase levels of compliance.
