What is the Integrated Farming standard?


 

The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, as well as Spain's Autonomous Communities, promote the application of sustainable farming techniques regulated under several standards, such as the Integrated Farming standard. The goal of this standard is to limit the environmental impact of farming techniques.

This standard can be certified and it defines an agricultural system that produces quality food using production mechanisms that protect both the health of humans as well as the environment, without compromising agricultural productivity.

Applying Integrated Farming techniques dramatically reduces the use of agrochemical products, thus reducing polluting wate and favouring a greater respect for the balance of ecosystems.
 

Who can obtain the Integrated Farming certification?


 

The Integrated Farming standard is aimed at any individual or legal entity (or any association of operators) dedicated to the production, handling, manufacture, packaging, labelling, storage or commercialisation of vegetable produce.

 

What does the Integrated Farming certification bring to a company?


 

The certification under the Integrated Farming standard allows organisations to certify their commitment to sustainable agriculture.

The companies that obtain this certification contribute to:

  • Respecting the balance of ecosystems.
  • Reducing air, water and soil pollution.
  • Reducing the amount of chemical waste of agricultural products.

In addition, obtaining the Integrated Farming standard certification gives a competitive advantage to these products in comparison with those produced using other agricultural systems. The products that have the emblem of Integrated Farming have an added value in the market that clearly distinguishes them from their competitors.
