Green Diamonds growers are all GLOBAL G.A.P. certified. This is the certification system for supermarket organisations in Europe. It includes requirements for safe, sustainably grown, high-quality and traceable products. These elements are also included in the QS certificate, a German certification system, specially developed for the fruit and vegetable industry.
Furthermore, retailers increasingly ask for a guarantee of good labour conditions and employment. For this, all our growers have the GRASP module, the test framework for the social aspect at cultivation locations. Green Diamonds packing is BRC Food certified, to guarantee hygiene and food safety at our packing centre.
Planet Proof is a sustainability label and focuses on five aspects of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: soil, landscape & biodiversity, water, energy, production & consumption and climate.
The Planet Proof-certified gardeners, growers and processors meet the statutory requirements for aspects including cleaner air, fertile soil, good water quality, more nature in farms and circular waste treatment and recycling.
Auditors check our products for quality, care and shelf life. They share the inspection reports with the growers and the sales department. They report and make recommendations to the growers to improve the quality and shelf life. They are also in charge of handling complaints.
