Socicana Smallholders Group Earns RSB Certification in Brazil

Socicana – Associação dos Fornecedores de Cana de Guariba, a sugar cane producers association based in Guariba, São Paulo, Brazil has earned RSB certification. The RSB certification included a group of 17 farmers and was part of the “ Cana Sustentável” (Sustainable Cane) project developed with support from the RSB and the  Boeing Corporate Citizenship Programme. Through this project, Socicana and the RSB were able to provide a comprehensive framework to implement sustainability objectives and customer demands, improve Socicana procedures, recognise, through RSB certification, the good practices carried out by the farmers, and reinforce the importance of the RSB as a tool to “translate” the objectives of sustainable development into practices adopted by all operators along the supply chains, including smallholders and family farmers.
