HACCP These laws apply to both domestic processors and those exporting their products to the United States. The European Union and Japan also require HACCP for specific products. In addition, many international buyers now require a working HACCP program as a prerequisite for becoming an accepted supplier.

Fruit Certification Standards in the UK

UK CERTIFICATION

Tesco Plc. is the most important supermarket in England and it has developed the agricultural production standard Tesco Nature?s Choice aimed to fruits and vegetables. Since 2006 Tesco started to require to its suppliers a mandatory certification under that standard.

Although it has true that it has a common base with GLOBAL GAP, the Tesco Nature?s Choice protocol is more focused on protecting and preserving the environment, giving special emphasis to topics related with work welfare. Tesco Nature?s Choice aims to:

- Improve the quality of the products.
- Ensure the sanity and safety of the food.
- Minimize the use of non renewable energy.
- Responsibility with the environment

Fruit Certification Standards in Europe

EUROPE CERTIFICATION
GLOBALGAP is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe. The GLOBALGAP standard is primarily designed to reassure consumers about how food is produced on the farm by minimizing detrimental environmental impacts of farming operations, reducing the use of chemical inputs and ensuring a responsible approach to worker health and safety as well as animal welfare. GLOBALGAP serves as a practical manual for Good Agricultural Practice (G.A.P.) anywhere in the world. The basis is an equal partnership of agricultural producers and retailers who wish to establish efficient certification standards and procedures.
