We understand that each company and organisation is unique, and so are your sustainability goals.

If your tailored assurance model is based on onsite verification, we can schedule it jointly with your Fairtrade Audit to reduce duplication, avoid audit fatigue, and save costs. After the audit, you will receive two separate reports.
