There are many GAP programs around the world.....they are on farm food safety systems. I don't know particularly if the UK has one. You need to know if they use manure on the fields (and if so what kind). Also ask if they adhere to any pesticide/insecticide days to harvest requirements.  Ie. spray today....label says 21 days til harvest....do they actually follow that
