This is to inform you that chilly farms in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka under our IPM program have been recognized by the Certification Committee of the Sustainable Farm Certification International, Ltd as complying to the certification requirements of the Sustainable Agriculture Network’s current Standards.
We have always advocated sustainable development and have now joined the growing community that is committed to protecting biodiversity, conserving resources for the good of planet and future generations while ensuring that farm workers their families and communities are treated well. Producers whose farms are RFA certified and buyers who source products from these farms are granted conditional permission to use the RAC seal in marketing and labelling of their products.
Chillies sourced from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh are now RFA Certified and can now have the jumping frog, the icon that indisputably lauds our efforts to protect ecosystem in our endeavour to bring the best from the nature.
The RAC seal is a symbol which is easily recognizable by consumers and indicates quality farm management and commitment to effective conservation and sustainable practices. We can now use this seal for marketing and labelling chillies sourced from the RFA certified farms only.
Consumers can now request for a transaction certificate to ensure that the product or ingredient they have purchased was actually produced by a Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farm.
Licensed to use the RAC seal since June 05,2013
