NZGAP GLOBALG.A.P. Equivalent is recognised as a “Fully Benchmarked GLOBALG.A.P. Scheme”. This means that the standard and checklist has been reviewed and accepted as meeting the equivalent outcomes of the GLOBALG.A.P. standard.

The difference is that this NZGAP scheme has been developed specifically for New Zealand production practices. It addresses the same issues in a New Zealand context by describing our production systems, farm ownership structures, technical terms and practices.  

Growers that use the NZGAP GLOBALG.A.P. Equivalent scheme comment that it is written in plain English, is relevant and gets to the point in fewer questions.
