GLOBALG.A.P. and GMP+ International join forces

Both parties have signed the respective Letter of Intent to enter into a global strategic partnership. They expect the alliance to strengthen their operations to the benefit of all certified companies.

Both organisations, while keeping their independence, are looking to harmonise governance and system rules in order to provide a strong, efficient and transparent tool for the feed industry, which is also in the best interest of downstream livestock and aquaculture farmers. The organisations are both certification scheme providers whose activities complement each other.

Johan den Hartog, Managing Director of GMP+ International says, "We aim to achieve optimal results by focusing on our respective core businesses, while at the same time aligning the normative requirements so as to operate according to the same principles in governance, certification and integrity. In due course this will result in us being able to operate at lower cost while providing the same high quality levels".

"With a focus on providing safe and wholesome food for consumers, we are joining hands with GMP+ International to eliminate any possible certificate duplication and to create synergies in the standards and systems, thus enabling the feed industry and farmers to participate in a controlled chain of custody system", Dr Kristian Moeller, CEO of GLOBALG.A.P. explains.
