GlobalG.A.P. Announces Free Summer Webinar Series

PORTLAND, Oregon – GLOBALG.A.P. North America is excited to announce its new free summer webinar series highlighting the often-untapped value that farmers can derive from the Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) standard.

The flagship GLOBALG.A.P. IFA standard is globally recognized for its robust food safety certification at farm level. However, IFA represents more than just a certificate for meeting customer food safety requirements.
