Social, Economic and Environmental Standards

  • Certification readiness
  • 2008 - ongoing
  • Businesses often face significant challenges in the adminstration or adaptation of their internal systems and procedures to become ready to attain and sustain third party certifications. We have developed supportive systems to introduce businesses to the rationale, structure and requirements of a number of standards such as Fairtrade International, UTZ Certified, SIZA and Fair Trade Tourism and are skilled in assisting businesses through gap analysis, action planning, training and implementation to become certification-ready. We provide this service to a wide range of clients from small producer cooperatives to large agri-business, as well as corporate clients and international buyers.
