GlobalG.A.P. WorkShop

GlobalG.A.P. WorkShop. I'm Greg Martin with today's Fruit Grower Report.

GlobalG.A.P. is a business-to-business standard for safe and sustainable food production. Nicole Brunner with the Washington State Tree Fruit Association talks about an upcoming workshop.

BRUNNER: The objective of this workshop is basically to provide structure and documentation for successful implementation of GlobalG.A.P. for our industry members. It provides for the frameworks for the scope of crops base with the sub-scope for the fruits and vegetables certification. So anybody within the industry, basically this would be for participant including auditors and inspectors from the certification bodies who audit GlobalG.A.P., quality managers, technical advisors,consultants, farm insurers, suppliers and retailers who rely on Global G.A.P. for their farm assurance process.

Also anyone who is not familiar with GlobalG.A.P. and who would like to learn more.

BRUNNER: It will be here in Wenatchee at the Apple Commission building December 2nd, 3rd and 4th. The first two days are in the classroom and if by chance the weather is cooperating with us then on the last day, Friday, we'll be on-farm.

For more details and to register contact Nicole at the Washington State Tree Fruit Association.

That's today's Fruit Grower Report. I'm Greg Martin on the Ag Information Network of the West.
