Why should you become an Implementation Partner?

  • Do you work with grower groups who are certified through an Internal Control System (ICS)?

  • Are you a processing or trading company with a significant number of contracted farmers?

  • Are you engaged in a development organisation or agricultural association?

  • Are you a consultant?

  • Are you a certifier?

Group certification for standards like organic, fair trade etc. greatly facilitates the marketing chances of smallscale farmers and of companies sourcing from smallholders. Therefore, we offer Group Integrity as an affordable, web-based tool for the professional management of internal control systems (ICS) that makes group certification efficient and credible at the same time.

Join us on our path towards professionalising group certification!

Get in touch with us and become an implementation partner for Group Integrity. We will set up the grower group(s) for you, advise you on how to make the best use of the tool, provide you with the required materials (demo version, video tutorials, manuals etc.) and will be available for your support at any time.

Our Integrity Toolset

The tools Ecert Basic and Group Integrity facilitate the audit and certification management of grower groups and small, local certification bodies, making their surveillance systems more robust, transparent, efficient and competitive. Our non-analytic mass balance approach, Check Organic, reveals food fraud even before the product is sold on the market. The combination of the three systems Check Organic, Group Integrity and Ecert Basic considerably facilitates the collaboration between supply chain actors (for example between a farmer group and their external certification body). This creates synergies that can benefit the industry as a whole.
