CERTIFICATIONS


We use trusted third party certifications and our internal standard, NFC, to guarantee quality production processes, sustainable agricultural practices, and to meet the needs of our Kosher and Halal customers.


    INTERNAL STANDARD OF SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION

    Over the years, we found that there is space to elevate shared value beyond the use of progressive third-party certifications. Not only does our internal policy give farmers a voice in creating invaluable standards that drive sustainability, but it also improves quality, efficiency, and communication to bring you the best of the best. 


      Nature – Future – Culture (NFC) was developed from a strong commitment to our values and mission. We go above and beyond conventional Fair Trade by implementing our internal standard. With the help of local actors, NFC was created to be a unique blend of customer needs and expectations, international sustainability standards, and ORIGINE quality and philosophies.

       
       

      Our goal is for 100% of our value chains to be in line with our internal standard by 2020.

      NFC is a unique programme because it is crop specific and allows for adaption that truly benefits farmers and results in a better end product.

      Besides our own internal standard, we also have several third party certifications.
