The GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard is an international set of standards covering the entire seafood production supply chain. Recognised by more than 100 countries and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), GLOBALG.A.P. provides guidance on sustainable production, worker health and safety, and product quality, enabling organisations to keep pace with growing consumer and retailer demand for high-quality, high-welfare seafood. The standard also demonstrates to consumers and retailers that you’re committed to safe, sustainable food production, and can therefore help you break into new markets.
Our GLOBALG.A.P. services
LRQA was one of the earliest adopters of the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard, we can support you with a range of services that cover everything from training on the basics to the implementation of a full quality management system, including certification for complimentary standards such as SMETA, FSSC 22000, and ISO 22000.
LRQA gap analysis looks at your existing quality management system and assesses it against GLOBALG.A.P. requirements. This helps us determine your organisation’s readiness for assessment and close up any gaps prior to your audit.
Certification consists of an independent process that provides a clear statement of your organisation’s capabilities. Achieving certification by meeting GLOBALG.A.P. requirements helps to build stakeholder trust and win new business.
Integrating your management system enables you to benefit from a more efficient and cost-effective audit and surveillance program covering complementary areas such as BRCGS, FSSC 22000, and ISO 45001.
