Rainforest alliance

The Rainforest Alliance certification is intended for producers, producer groups, processors, importers, exporters, and distributors.

The label is designed to develop more sustainable and responsible agricultural production and supply chains.

Rainforest Alliance has two standards : 

  1. The first one concerns agriculture and more specifically coffee, cocoa, tea, fruit, vegetables and nuts.
  2. The second one certifies the entire supply chain, allowing your company to source and sell Rainforest Alliance Certified products.

 

What does the label guarantee?

  • Improving the living conditions and health of producers, their families and communities
  • Protecting biodiversity, preventing deforestation and mitigating the impacts of climate change
  • Improving productivity and reducing production costs, leading to higher incomes
  • Protecting the rights of workers and children
  • Building climate resilience through smart farming methods

GLOBALG.A.P.

This certification is intended for farmers (crop and livestock production) and processors.

GLOBALG.A.P. is an internationally recognised set of standards for Good Agriculture Practices.

It enables you to meet the requirements of retailers in terms of food safety and sustainability on a global level.

5 advantages of GLOBALG.A.P. certification

  • Add value to your products by complying with the globally recognised GLOBALG.A.P. standards.
  • Access new local and international customers, markets, suppliers and distributors.
  • Reduce your exposure to reputational risks in food and product safety.
  • Optimise the efficiency of your processes and management of your operation.
  • Get a GLOBALG.A.P. Number (GGN) for easy identification and traceability in business-to-business trade.

If you are already certified organic, you will find it easier to obtain GLOBALG.A.P. certification as many of the principles are similar to the EU organic farming specifications and are based on the same values: sustainability, health, animal welfare, respect for the environment.
