From early August 2017 we are certified according to Global GAP, GRASP and HACCP.
This is a European quality system intended to ensure food safety. GAP stands for Good Agricultural Production of fresh fruit and vegetables. Once a company has been certified, it is regularly checked by TUV-Nord. In order to maintain Global GAP our administration conducts our own checks.
A breeder who is certified:
- minimizes environmental pollution
- urges the use of artificial plant protection products
- makes more efficient use of natural resources
- works well with people’s health, safety and well-being
Minimal use is made of artificial fertilizer and plant protection products and we accurately register how much and what resources are used. Super-berries endeavors as much as possible for organic farming and introduces many natural pesticides. For example, birds, ladybugs and bees are used for combat. The weed is not sprayed away with pesticides but is removed mechanically and manually.
