GREATER TRANSPARENCY WHEN BUYING FLOWERS AND PLANTS
A flower says more than a thousand words, but reveals nothing about its actual origin. And that’s exactly what the GGN is there for. Wherever you see the GGN label displayed or attached to bundles of your favorite blooms, you can be assured your flowers and plants were grown using good agricultural practices that conserve soil and water, use energy efficiently, reduce waste and protect people and the planet from the risks posed by pesticides, as well as taking care of the social concerns of their employees. The GGN number also allows you to trace the origin of your flowers back to the farm itself.
We feel committed to our partners and customers who rely on our label. Our goal is to promote certified responsible agriculture together with farmers, retailers, and consumers around the globe. That is why we formulated the GLOBALG.A.P. Standard in such a way as to ensure that it makes the work of farmers better and safer. With the GGN label, farmers can show that they truly care about the protection of our environment and the safety of their employees. By buying a GGN labeled product, you can support them in this endeavor.
OUR STANDARD: GLOBALG.A.P.
G.A.P. stands for good agricultural practices – and GLOBALG.A.P. is the worldwide standard that ensures these practices. We want to make the benefits of the standard available to all. That is why we developed the standard in such a way as to enable small farms to implement it too. And GLOBALG.A.P. also moves with the times: We are continuously developing the standard together with farmers and consumers. That is why it is implemented around the world in more than 30 countries.
