Fostering supply chain sustainability helps organizations manage risk, satisfy customer demand, create resilience, and deliver efficiencies that ultimately save money. Third-party verification of your responsible sourcing program provides transparency to your supply chain, manage potential risks and innovate to create positive environmental and social impacts. The verification reinforces that your suppliers grow or produce food using efficient, safe and ethical field or factory environments.

The process can vary depending on industry, product type, and company goals, but usually begins with SCS conducting a Needs Assessment to determine the level of engagement. This iterative process takes an in-depth look at current sourcing practices in order to define appropriate goals and steps forward. The final outcome is a comprehensive proposal with deliverables designed to meet the stated responsible sourcing objectives. Verification of your supply chain by SCS reinforces buyers and consumers that your food is produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way, with practices that achieve the highest level of quality.
