A certification body controls certification standards and procedures for good agricultural practices. It aims to increase consumers' confidence in food safety by developing good agricultural practices which must be adopted by producers.
Primoris has build up a lot of experience working together with official food safety inspection organisations and supports these official groups with pesticide analyses and advice related to the official food safety legislation.
