Code of Practice Silver and Gold status extended

1 November 2021 Mariska Braam

Today our Silver and Gold status for the EHPEA Code of Practice was officially extended. This label from the Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association monitors the social and environmental performance of affiliated exporters of flowers, cuttings, and vegetables in Ethiopia. EHPEA Code of Practice has three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. Code of Practice Silver is equivalent to the international Global GAP for flowers and ornamentals. Control Union Certification (CUC) performs the independent audits and certifications during certification. Compared to the Code of Practice Silver, Gold status requires additional activities and collaboration with the local community and the horticultural sector. Sher Ethiopia has held Gold status since 2014.
