Details

In Kenya, the Food Security Standard (FSS) underwent a reality check in a smallholder coffee grower context. The pilot audit was held within a regular Rainforest Alliance audit at the Kangunu Cooperative in Murang’a County. It provided the FSS Team an insight into the options cooperatives and coffee-trading companies have to address food security but also showed limits and indicated where other actors in the value chain have to act and take responsibilities.
