First Recognized GlobalG.A.P. Farm for Hemp

by | Nov 16, 2020 | News

During October of 2020, Iverson Family Farms became the first Global Good Agricultural Practices (GLOBALG.A.P.) certified farm for hemp in the United States. GLOBALG.A.P. is a highly recognized organization with a crucial objective: safe and sustainable agriculture worldwide. They set voluntary standards for third party verified agricultural products around the globe. This accomplishment gives FSOil, which processes hemp grown by Iverson Family Farms, the ability to move more fluidly within the international marketplace. The GLOBALG.A.P. farm-level certification, combined with our other quality certifications for processing, makes Iverson Family Farms and FSOil one of the most accredited hemp production and CBD extraction operations in the world.

The core values for GLOBALG.A.P. reflect those of FSOil and Iverson Family Farms. This accreditation allows us to continue expanding upon our current set of quality standards and certifications. Here are some of the ways that our ideals mirror those of GLOBALG.A.P.

We are driven by shared values

At FSOil, we are all working toward a common goal – to grow and process the highest quality extracts on the market while observing state and federal regulations. Our quality team works hand in hand with each team member to ensure we maintain quality at every stage of our process.

We celebrate diversity

FSOil is inclusive and observes all belief systems, orientations, and personal values. We embrace diversity and strive to make each and every employee visible, regardless of nationality or languages spoken. Not only do we celebrate diversity of our team members, but we celebrate a diversity of crops, with Iverson Family Farms cultivating over 100 different crops.

We champion excellence

FSOil is a cGMP third party verified facility, along with being USDA certified organic, Hemp Authority certified and Kosher certified. We also align ourselves with several organizations such as the Oregon Farm Bureau, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, the Natural Products Association, and several others. Our quality systems include two-person verification at each stage of the process, as well as a written set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in order to maintain consistency and quality from seed to finished oil.

We keep our promises

FSOil has always believed that transparency is key. As leaders in the industry, we position ourselves to educate other growers and processers so as to improve the overall landscape of the industry. At FSOil, we pride ourselves on working hard, playing fair, and always delivering.

We act in concert

Each and every individual at Iverson Family Farms and FSOil is committed to providing the highest quality CBD hemp extract on the market. Through embracing our GLOBALG.A.P. certification and its value system, we are able to achieve our ultimate goal of helping others.
