Standards and their impacts on the horticulture trade

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Many standards are imposed to protect the public against food safety risks, but there are other standards, including private ones, that deal with issues such as food quality, environmental and social factors, and sustainable development. From legal and economic perspectives, both private standards and public standards affect international trade in fresh horticultural crops. These standards are increasingly important for countries exporting agricultural products, such as Turkey, as producers and exporters are required to comply with these standards in order to gain access to foreign markets. Public standards are set by Governments and their agencies and are subject to the international trade rules under the World Trade Organization of which Turkey is a Member, whereas private standards are by definition privately imposed by business and non-governmental organizations such as GLOBALGAP and are not subject to any international regulations. This chapter explores the differences between public and private standards and their impact on farmers in the developing countries, in particular on producers and exporters of horticultural products in Turkey.
