Red Fox International Locations Earn Top CertificationsSource: Red Fox

Red Fox Las Mercedes in El Salvador successfully passed MPS-Good Agricultural Practices certification, and Red Fox Ethiopia reached the Gold certificate of the Ethiopian Horticulture Producer & Export Association.

Red Fox Las Mercedes in El Salvador successfully passed MPS-Good Agricultural Practices (MPS-GAP) certification, and Red Fox Ethiopia reached the Gold certificate of the Ethiopian Horticulture Producer & Export Association (EHPEA).

Originally developed for fruit and vegetable production, MPS-GAP has been adapted for the flower industry. MPS-GAP looks at the whole production process: land use; parental material; training of workers (all levels) and advisors; storage and use of chemicals and fertilizers; safety, health and hygiene; policies on use of energy, chemicals and substrate; call-back procedures and waste management.

Red Fox Las Mercedes started working with GAP in March 2013 and is now certified.

The EHPEA Code consists of three levels of excellence allowing Ethiopian flower and ornamental plant farms to be rewarded at each stage of their process towards development practices within the chain. At each level the code includes requirements for internal management of farm practices and compliance, good agricultural practices, protection of the environment, welfare of employees and implementation of responsible employment practices.
