United Fresh: All Harmonized Standards available in Spanish

The Spanish versions of Field Operations and Harvesting, Post-harvest Operations and the Combined Harmonized Food Safety Standards are all now official without change and available for use.

The Harmonized Standards were created by a wide spectrum of fresh produce industry stakeholders by merging the requirements of over a dozen well-respected Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) food safety standards. The Harmonized Standards are freely available for use and have been adopted by more than 20 audit organizations, including USDA, GLOBALG.A.P, SQF and the audit organizations mentioned below.

“The Harmonized Standards provide a level playing field in food safety expectations desired by the largest to the smallest suppliers, regardless of who performs the audit” said Dr. David Gombas, United Fresh’s Sr. Vice President, Food Safety and Technology and coordinator for the Produce GAPs Harmonization Initiative. “The official Spanish versions are the next step in assuring that consistency.”

All three documents are considered final as of September 1, 2015. The Harmonized Standards are available for free download by clicking here.
