NZGAP Activity Report 2018

NZGAP's key focus over the past year continued to be pushing for a more efficient and credible certification scheme for industry. The team worked on both improving the day-to-day running of the NZGAP scheme by streamlining workloads as well as developing strong, future-proof strategies to stay ahead of both market and regulatory requirements.

NZGAP Activity Report 2017

NZGAP continues to build its credibility and recognition within the fresh produce industry.

The past year has been one of progress and growth for NZGAP with the implementation of a number of new programmes and an increase in the number of NZGAP certificate holders. In the coming year we are looking forward to the release of a new version (6) of the checklist and a sustainability programme for growers. We will continue to develop systems and tools that are valuable to growers, including using spatial and data technology to reduce audit times.
