MPS-GAP Certificate

The MPS-GAP certificate is designed for companies supplying to retailers, and consists of a series of production requirements regarding traceability, sustainability, safety and hygiene. After MPS-ABC, MPS-GAP is the next step towards improved sustainability.
The certification scheme is benchmarked against GLOBALG.A.P and therefore complies with the requirements for the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI). FSI is an international organisation with members from all over the world. These members have set the target of having at least 90% of the flowers and plants that are traded globally certified for sustainability by 2020. This means that companies with an MPS-GAP certificate will count towards FSI’s target for 2020. A list of all MPS-GAP-certified companies is available on the MPS Trade Portal.

Demonstrable traceability, safety and hygiene

An MPS-ABC certificate is a prerequisite for MPS-GAP. In addition to a valid MPS-ABC qualification, the MPS-GAP check includes an inspection of whether the equipment is maintained on a regular basis and how you and your employees handle pesticides and fertilisers. Risk reduction and traceability of your flowers or plants are two important reasons to earn the MPS-GAP certificate. The certificate is also part of MPS-Florimark Production, the leading quality label for sustainability.

The MY-MPS daily records application makes it easy for you to keep track of your records. We can also assist you in drafting a series of policy plans detailing your and your employees’ approach to the MPS-GAP requirements.
