By marrying the timeless wisdom of nature with cutting-edge agricultural practices, SinoDry® offers an array of extracts that not only enhance health and beauty but also respect and nurture our precious planet.

The foundation of sustainable sourcing of botanical dry extracts

Good Agricultural Practices, often also know by their acronym GAP, are a set of essential frameworks for farm management aimed at laying the most solid foundations for sustainable agriculture and rural development (SARD). They involve a holistic approach to farming that considers environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity, focusing on enhancing food safety and quality while promoting environmental sustainability and social welfare.

GAP involves a comprehensive set of principles and best practices that ensure the safe and quality production of food and non-food agricultural products by leading agricultural production towards being economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible, thus ensuring the long-term health and productivity of farming systems. These practices encompass a broad range of activities, from the good management of inputs and natural resources to labour standards and occupational safety, aimed at minimizing environmental impact, improving productivity and efficiency and ensuring the workers well-being.

GAP have been developed and recognised by a wide range of stakeholders, including food industries, governments, NGOs and producers’ organizations, to guide agricultural production methods worldwide.
