Retailers and foodservice procurement officers consider independent verification of good agricultural practices (GAP) or good manufacturing practices (GMP) a basic requirement for conducting business with their suppliers. Based on cGMPs and HACCP principles, SCS Global Services offers auditing services to the SCS GMP checklist as well as the Primus Standard GMP audit. GAP auditing is to the United Fresh Produce GAPs Harmonized standard.
