GAP commit the producer to “do things right” and “give guarantees of it”.
The concept of Good Agricultural Practices has evolved as a result and commitment of a wide range of public and private sector stakeholders on the safety and quality of food and the environmental sustainability of agriculture.
They involve actions during the production, processing and transportation of products of agricultural origin, aimed assuring the safety of the product, the protection of the environment and the personnel working in the field or the farm.
As a result of certification, the food product is recognized as safe; it has been produced with the proper use of natural resources and the welfare of the workers involved in the production process has been taken into account.
Good Agricultural Practices for the production of peanuts
JLA Argentina is located in the heart of the peanut production area. Based on the experience gained during many years of work with this crop and after studying the principles of Good Agricultural Practices, we believe that Argentine peanuts are not far from being produced in compliance with the requirements of GAP. All that needs to be done is to internalize the farmers or producers on them and habituate them to register their activities.
Therefore, we have created a scheme to follow in order to obtain the certification.
The JLA-GAP manual is exclusively for the production of peanuts and is based on the GlobalGap standards and the norms of the Argentine organizations that also focus on this food product.
