Global G.A.P. certification that is headquartered in Germany, is today one of the world’s leading farm assurance programs that translates consumer requirements into Good Agriculture Practices, in a rapidly growing list of countries, which is currently more than 100 and are spread across all continents.
Craigmore Plantations (India) Private Limited prides itself for the environmentally friendly agricultural practices which are based on strong scientific principles and which the company has been practicing for several years.
It is with this strong conviction of having practiced tea cultivation for over a hundred years based on the company’s written down policies and practices which are widely acknowledged as being environmentally sustainable and which look after the long-term health and fertility of the soil, that the company decided to go in for the Global GAP certification program in early 2011. The main aim of going in for this certification program was to find out how the company fared on a global scale as far as Good Agricultural Practices were concerned.
In February 2011 the company was certified by the Global G.A.P. program and thus became the first tea plantation company in the whole of India to achieve this valued certification. While being a pioneer in Global G.A.P. Tea Certification in India the company practices environmentally friendly and sustainable cultivation and manufacture on its farms and factories while ensuring the welfare, health & safety of its workforce and the local population. Craigmore Plantations (India) Private Limited is also the only company from India, and globally one of the four proud recipients of the G.A.P. Awards 2013, declared by Global G.A.P. where certified plantations from all over the world take part in. To read more on the award from GlobalGAP click on the following link:
