The project involves the classification and certification of the establishments that are dedicated to this activity. During 2008, there were 158 farms registered as businesses of agro-tourism.
A total of 12 farms received certificates to offer agro-tourism services after completing the Agricultural Good Practices (BPA).
The largest dairy business in the country and the National Service of Animal Health will certify milk producers with good agro-ecological practices.
19 associations have received certificates enabling them to export to the USA by complying with international agricultural best practice standards.
Before July 2013 roots and tubers packaging plants must obtain health certification from the HACCP, in order to continue exporting to the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
