Recent findings have shown that GLOBALG.A.P. Certification has a positive impact on worker welfare as farm workers are given more training. Though workers on large certified farms earn more than those on small farms, they also show more health problems. Certification on small farms is associated with higher satisfaction of workers with their lives compared to workers on non-certified small farms.
The GRASP SHC will present the improved GRASP tools that were reviewed based on feedback received during the last 2 years of running the add-on. The GRASP Checklist will be refined and requirements for producer groups and the qualification of auditors have been reviewed.
