Therefore, an operation certified to option B, C or D would meet the requirement for GFSI. Through a formal benchmarking process, GFSI recognizes these CanadaGAP certification options as meeting their international requirements for food safety programs. Note that Option D has been recognized for the repacking and wholesaling scope, not for brokerage. For more information about GFSI, the benchmarking process, and the scopes of recognition, visit
