Food Safety and Traceability
NAB is working on a local G.A.P (Good Agricultural Practices) industry-based food safety standard for agronomy and horticulture products that will serve as the minimum national standard. The local G.A.P (NAM G.A.P.) aims to strengthen food safety and traceability throughout the local food supply chain from farm to the table and will be a required minimum standard for adherence to local products destined for sale on the Namibian and regional markets. Namibian products destined for exports markets such as the EU should adhere to the global G.AP standard which is a globally recognized food safety standard. Farms and Facilities are inspected through a risk-based approach to ensure that the agronomy and horticulture sector manages food safety risks associated with various crops.
