Following the postponement of several European and international trade fairs and conferences in the sector, we have been receiving questions about the status of the SUMMIT 2020. The COVID-19 situation has evolved rapidly, bringing with it new challenges. We considered all possible options for our 2020 edition of the SUMMIT, but due to the current situation all around the world, and the uncertainty regarding how long it will take to get back to normality, GLOBALG.A.P. has decided to reschedule the SUMMIT for autumn 2021 Please check this website regularly for updates or register for our SUMMIT newsletter here.

In the meantime, we remain in close contact with our partners all around the world and are focusing on consultations for the new version of the GLOBALG.A.P. IFA standard through our World Consultation Tour: The GLOBALG.A.P. World Consultation Tour 2020 is the largest worldwide virtual consultation ever undertaken for a private standard for good agricultural practices (G.A.P.). In 2020, we are in the process of revising our Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) standard version 6, and we would like to take the opportunity to integrate online feedback loops in addition to our first public consultation period, from May until June 2020, and our second public consultation period, from November 2020 until January 2021. 

You are cordially invited to give us feedback and co-design your GLOBALG.A.P. IFA standard for the future.
