The presentation will include a brief background of the Herb, Spice, Specialty Agriculture Association (HSSA), its associated programs, and mandate. The national Good Agriculture and Collection Practices (GACP) program will be outlined in detail from development and collaborations to benchmarking and delivery. It will outline how HACCP plays a role and what that means to those using the program.The presentation will use an example such as how a smallscale producer/processor would use the program and why. The description will detail how a producer/processor gets involved and what is required of them. This is the only GACP program in Canada but the presentation will outline its relationship with other food safety programs across the country and in BC. The GACP program scope is field to shelf across the specialty agriculture sector. There is cross over between GACP programs and others across the country. MOUs have been developed to address these common areas.
