Group Integrity is a new software program that facilitates the certification of smallholder groups and businesses with small producers under contract farming. It achieves this through providing support with the management of the internal quality verification system (e.g. ICS, PGS, GLOBALG.A.P. Option 2).
Using Group Integrity means that preparation and implementation of internal controls are greatly simplified and thus the cooperation with the external certification body.
- An ultimate solution for the professional management of grower groups targeting national and international markets.
- A solution essential for transforming your grower group into a well-structured, transparent and reliable market partner.
