East4Fresh BV works predominantly with growers that are Global G.A.P. certified. Global gap is the most accepted certification in the world to guarantee food safety.
This certification ensures that growers follow these globally accepted Good Agricultural Procedures. Matters as:
• personal hygiene
• improving the efficiency of natural resource use
• reducing the use of crop protection agents
• temperature control
• prevention of microbiological contamination
• and ensuring a responsible attitude towards worker health and safety
are just a few things secured by this certification. It helps to insure that produce consumed by us meets EU legislation concerning residues of chemicals.
When possible, our growers incorporate Integrated Pest Management. This gives the grower the option of using natural pests to fight diseases and other reasons for crop losses instead of chemicals during production.
