Unprocessed agricultural products for use in or as feed can only be purchased by a GMP+ FSA certified company from the growers via a Gatekeeper protocol. A risk assessment is part of this protocol.
GMP+ International gives grower schemes an opportunity to provide insight into the extent to which their scheme meets the requirements of the GMP+ FC scheme, this is done by means of a benchmark. A major advantage is that the affiliated growers can more easily sell their products on the GMP+ certified market.
