Establishment of the GLOBALG.A.P. System for Pitaya in Taiwan
The planted area for dragon fruit (
sp.) in Taiwan reached 2,865 hectares and yielded 69,717 tons in 2019. It is mainly sold domestically, and its exports are at 0.76%. Recently, to expand the overseas market, we have introduced the GlobalG.A.P. certification system in the pitaya industry. So far, we have three producers certified, including one individual certification and two group certifications. To establish the GlobalG.A.P. certification system, we have trained several professional counselors. They not only help to create customized documents for certification but assist in site evaluation. Thus, we will discuss some problems and how the certification process of pitaya in Taiwan can further be improved. Although there are still many challenges that are being faced, the GlobalG.A.P. will continue to spread to the whole pitaya industry, to ensure its sustainable development.
