Rainforest Alliance certification strengthens your position in the marketplace – assuring your customers that your agricultural products are grown and harvested on farms that promote social, economic, and environmental standards for sustainable agriculture. Certification to this standard encompasses ecosystem conservation, wildlife protection, and fair treatment and good working conditions for workers. To become certified, participants must comply with the requirements of the Sustainable Agriculture Farm Standard or the Sustainable Agriculture Supply Chain Standard. Adding this internationally recognized Rainforest Alliance certified seal to your product enables both businesses and consumers do their part to ensure a better future for the people and planet.
The Rainforest Alliance 2020 Sustainable Agriculture Standard (SAS) is the result of the merger of Rainforest Alliance and UTZ in 2018, to create a single agriculture sustainability standard and certification program. The new framework allows farms to perform one audit of their operations and avoid duplication of work to adhere to the world’s two most widely known sustainability certification standards.
SCS offers Rainforest Alliance auditing and certification services in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ghana, Tanzania, Côté d'ivoire, Solomon Islands, Portugal, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
