TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas executives recently participated at the GLOBALGAP Summit in Madrid of Spain with great success. This congress was held for the 11h time by GLOBALGAP and more than 400 participants from all the levels of production attended. Particularly, there were people coming from not only the primary production, processing and manufacturing, but food storage and distribution too. It is worth noting that a lead auditor of TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas participated to the main panel of speakers and presented TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas’ experiences of its first certification about aquaculture which was based on the relevant standard of GLOBALG.A.P. / IFA 4.0 Aquaculture BASE.
TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas, which has been already recognized according to the international standard ‘GLOBALG.A.P. / IFA 4.0 Aquaculture BASE’ as “Provisional Certification Body” (http://www2.globalgap.org/cb-profiles/9000.html), took part in this summit in order to further improve its services.

Also, it has already carried out the translation and the technical performance of the Aquaculture BASE standard in the Greek language according to the agreement with Foodplus GmbH.
Finally, TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas is recognized by GLOBALGAP as an organization of certification in Fresh Fruits & Vegetables sector.
