SIZA added to FSI Basket of Standards for Social
The Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) has added the South African Standard for Sustainable Agriculture (SIZA) to its Basket of Standards for Social. SIZA had previously completed the benchmarking process against the Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP), the FSI benchmarking partner for Social.
As a compliant scheme on criteria as well as audit methodology and audit process, it is eligible to the FSI Basket for Social. This recognises that growers who have obtained the SIZA social audit certificate cultivate their products under socially-acceptable conditions.
SIZA is the 15th standard joining the FSI Basket.
