A North Carolina grower-shipper has achieved GlobalGAP certification for its commodities.

Autryville, N.C.-based Jackson’s Farming Co. received GlobalGAP version 4 for its strawberries, sweet potatoes and broccoli. It became U.S. Department of Agriculture good agricultural practices certified in August and achieved GlobalGAP certification for its watermelon, cantaloupes and specialty melons in October, according to a news release.

"The certification of these three additional crops confirms our commitment to providing high quality, safely grown and processed products," Jackson’s Farming officials said in the release.

In mid-March, Jackson’s Farming is planting seeded and seedless watermelon, Athena cantaloupes, eastern honeydews, specialty melons such as galia, magenta, piel de sapo, sprite and canary, broccoli, sweet potatoes and strawberries.
