EurepGAP ambassador for Africa

An ambassador for smallholder farmers, supported by DFID and GTZ*, has been appointed to the EurepGAP Sector Committees. In the newly-created post as Observer for Africa, Dr Johannes Kern's role will involve providing technical support to EurepGAP members in developing countries. Kern will be involved in establishing new frameworks for best practice in smallholder certification, making the system more cost-effective by developing a group certification model and working with smallholder schemes operating in Latin America and Asia.

After two years of stakeholder discussions involving feedback from nearly 10 years of working with its standards, EurepGAP has published its third version of Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) standards. The new version harmonises criteria for food safety, and environmental and worker protection, providing one GAP standard.
