GLOBAL G.A.P. certified
The Toppy white shrimps (Penaeus vannamei) of Culimer B.V. are GLOBALG.A.P. certified products. GLOBALG.A.P (formerly known as EUREPG.A.P) has established itself as a key reference for Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P.) in the global market place, by translating consumer requirements into agricultural production in a rapidly growing list of countries – currently more than 100 on every continent.
GLOBALG.A.P is a pre-farm-gate standard, which means that the certificate covers the process of the certified product from farm inputs like feed or seedlings and all the farming activities until the product leaves the farm. GLOBALG.A.P is a business-to-business label and is therefore not directly visible to consumers.
