What is the Collaboration About?
While both organisations provide a system to monitor working conditions on farms, they use different systems and procedures to reach this objective. To avoid wasted resources and audit fatigue, both organisations have agreed that producers that can show a valid Rainforest Certificate are acknowledgeable for the BSCI Commitment Formula on Primary Production and do not need to pass a BSCI audit.
The benefits are multi-fold:
- Reduced costs for all players
- Better coverage of the food supply chain
- More resources for capacity building and remediation of labour issues
