Company type and options

From GLOBALG.A.P. Wiki

The different combination of company type and options allow to certify products in numerous constellations.

Company type

The company type categorizes the legal entity: there can be only a

  • producer: a legal entity cultivating the product as a single supplier

or a

  • producer group: a cooperative (a PMO) contracting single producers, who cultivate the product and supply the group

Options

The options describe who owns and sells which product.

  • Option 1 GLOBALG.A.P. scheme standard and AMC (Approved Modified Checklists)
  • Option 3 Fully benchmarked schemes

If the single producer owns and sells the product directly to the market, then its own products are certified as option 1 or 3. The same applies for producer groups: If the group cultivates and sells its own product - a different one than the product of the cooperative - , this product is certified as option 1 or 3.


  • Option 2 GLOBALG.A.P. scheme standard and AMC (Approved Modified Checklists)
  • Option 4 Fully benchmarked schemes

If the single producer cultivates the product, but then sells it to the group who then markets the product as a producer group member, the products of this single producer are registered and accepted as option 2 or 4. This product of the group is then certified as option 2 or 4. Also the group can grow this (the same) product on its own (or rented) fields - however this cannot be registered in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. Even thought it has to be listed in the annex of the paper certificate.


Example:

Producer A grows and sells peaches: option 1 certificate

Producer A grows also nectarines and supplies group X: option 2 acceptance (no certificate!)

Group X markets nectarines: option 2 certificate incl. all members, also producer A

Group X also grows and sells nectarines: the same option 2 certificate incl. all members and the group, too

Group X grows and sells also plums (not supplied by members): option 1 certificate
