Tadeco gets GlobalGAP certification-A A +A
Monday, August 11, 2014
TAGUM Agricultural Development Company, Inc. (Tadeco) has again proven its commitment to the concept of best practices with its recent award of GlobalGAP certification for the entire plantation.
Tadeco, one of the world's highest yielding banana plantations, actively pursued and was eventually found to have met the strict standards set by Global Good Agricultural Practice (GlobalGAP), an international non-profit certifying organization that promotes food safety and agricultural sustainability, environmental protection, occupational health and safety for workers.
"Banana is the most consumed fruit in the world. As a major producer, we believe it is incumbent on us to reassure our consumers of the quality and safety of our bananas as well as of our responsible treatment of the environment and our priorities with regard to workers’ health, safety and working conditions," said Alexander N. Valoria, president of the premium Cavendish banana producing company.
Tadeco is likewise a recipient of the Philippine Good Agricultural Practices (PhilGAP) certification.
