For producers – it helps you document and verify your sustainability practices – everything from soil health to water quality to biodiversity. A Sustainable Continuous Improvement Plan™ is generated that helps you continue the path of environmental responsibility and helps you tell your sustainability story.

For food companies and manufacturers – it is about shoring up risk for your supply chain. It helps you verify what you say in your corporate social responsibility plans and gives you confidence that your producers are implementing measurable actions.

The result is greater collaboration between producers and food companies that share a common goal – environmental responsibility.
