New Fairtrade partnership for inspections
03 October 2012
SA Certification is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Fairtrade Foundation in the delivery of their labelling scheme. SA Certification will be carrying out inspections for the Fairtrade Foundation, starting October 1st.
Fairtrade and the Soil Association share many values: fairness is one of the four founding principles of organic production. This contract marks the next step in a supportive relationship between our two organisations, ensuring continued trust and integrity in labelling schemes that lead to positive change.
We’re pleased that the quality and integrity of SA Certification’s auditors has been recognised by the awarding of this contract, after an exhaustive tendering process. The new partnership is also going to be a great benefit to hundreds of existing Soil Association licensees who are dual-certified Organic and Fairtrade, with the prospect of one-stop bundled inspections.
