GLOBAL G.A.P. Certificate for Selecta one production site Klemm + Sohn

Our production site Klemm + Sohn in Stuttgart, Germany received the GLOBAL G.A.P. certificate for the production of rooted young plants.

After already being certified by MPS ABC since 2014 Klemm + Sohn now received the certification by the worldwide used certification system for agricultural products GLOBAL G.A.P. Our southern production sites Selecta Kenya, Wagagai (Uganda) and Selecta Canarias are also MPS certified for a sustainable and socially qualified production. The certification of GLOBAL G.A.P. verifies that our production is according to the global “good agricultural practice” meaning a secure and sustainable production for the good of producers, retailers and consumers. GLOBAL G.A.P. standards request more efficiency in production, responsible handling of chemicals and an integrated pest management among other things.

David Villani, Head of Production RC: „We are happy about the successful certification which is an important step on our way to become the most sustainable young plant company in our industry. Thanks to commitment of our employees we have been achieving this major goal.”

Klemm + Sohn has been found in 1932 in Stuttgart and is the German production company of the Selecta one group now. Every year 60 m young plants are rooted on 5.5 hectare production area.
