How did ES Ýigit get the Global G.A.P. certificate?
To obtain the Global G.A.P. certificate, the company has undergone a strict audit. The independent certification organization Control Union Certifications highly appreciated all aspects of the production process at the enterprise: from seed selection to packaging and storage of finished products. Quality control systems, tracking of the goods' path from the manufacturer to the consumer (tracing), risk management and environmental protection were also analyzed.
To obtain the Global G.A.P. certificate, Ýigit has implemented the strictest standards and regulations in its work. For example, an economic society uses only safe and internationally approved pesticides and fertilizers to protect its tomatoes from pests and diseases.
The certification was carried out with the assistance of the Program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) "Trade Central Asia". Turkmen company Standart Hyzmat performed as a consultant.
What other standards and regulations does ES Ýigit comply with in its production?
The company ensures a high level of hygiene at its plant and warehouses. All employees undergo a strict medical examination before starting work and wear special uniforms, gloves when handling tomatoes. The company has its own laundry, where it regularly washes employees' work clothes to ensure the maximum possible cleanliness in production.

Also, the greenhouse complex complies with all requirements for food safety during transportation and storage of tomatoes. Ýigit uses only clean and suitable containers that protect tomatoes from damage and contamination. Employees monitor temperature and humidity in warehouses and trucks to maintain product quality.
In general, obtaining a Global G.A.P. certificate is a very complex process. The certification covers more than 40 standards that are constantly updated and adapted to different regions and cultures.
In addition, all partners of the enterprise must meet high standards. This means that every company that cooperates with Ýigit also has its own certificates of local or international level, for example, from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
What are the advantages of the Global G.A.P. certificate?
With the certificate, Ýigit guarantees its customers and consumers complete transparency and traceability of products from farm to table. It also contributes to increasing the level of trust and cooperation between various links in the agricultural sector of Turkmenistan.
