Why are there different certification options? Which one should an operation choose?2017-11-03T16:26:13+00:00

The CanadaGAP Program has been designed to be as flexible and responsive as possible to developments within a dynamic industry. The certification options are tailored to respond to different market requirements and pressures, satisfy the expectations of a wide range of buyers both in Canada and internationally, and provide maximum benefit to Canadian suppliers by enabling them to gain access to markets regardless of customer demands. Operations should choose the option that meets their customer(s)’ requirements. If in doubt, operations should ask their buyer for clarification, or contact the CanadaGAP office. More detailed information on each of the options is available here. If a customer is requiring a GFSI-recognized program, the operation should choose CanadaGAP certification option B, C or D, all of which have been formally benchmarked to and approved by GFSI. Repackers, wholesalers and brokerage operations should select option D.
