The process begins with the launch of the SAG/USDA/IICA Food for Progress Program, which includes the strengthening of local, regional, national and international trade of agricultural products from small producers and processors in the field.

Agribusinesses must meet standards of health surveillance and control, of which the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are the basic principles and general hygiene practices to ensure that foods are produced in sanitary conditions to reduce risks inherent to production.
