We take care of the complexity of standards, verification and auditing for you

NZGAP covers a range of market and regulatory requirements

NZGAP certification greatly reduces the complexity and cost of legislative and market requirements for growers. The NZGAP programme is owned by Horticulture New Zealand on behalf of New Zealand growers. NZGAP is benchmarked to GLOBALG.A.P, affording it international recognition. GLOBALG.A.P. is a farm assurance standard accepted by retailers worldwide. 

To gain and maintain market access, growers must now be able to demonstrate a commitment to food safety, environmental and quality assurance issues. New Zealand GAP allows you to do that. NZGAP enables you to comply with New Zealand regulations that are not covered in market standards.  This can include regional council requirements on environmental issues and helping in the consenting process for the right to grow.

Which programme is best for me?

NZGAP offers a number of programmes and certification options covering the range of issues and different market requirements domestically and globally. Each programme has been tailored for specific retailer and regulatory requirements. For further information refer to the programmes tab or contact NZGAP on or 04 470 5867.
