Fact Sheet 4: Food
Security Standard
performs on plantations
in Bolivia

The Food Security Standard (FSS) was tested as a part of the sustainability certification of a group of sugar cane plantations in Bolivia. This Fact Sheet provides information on the process and outcome.

The pilot implementation of the FSS in Bolivia in November 2018 was the third reality check after successful trials in Malaysia and Guatemala. The test took place within the regular audit of a group of farms against the sustainability standard ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification).

“One thing that I like about the Food Security Standard is the objectivity with which it measures the availability of food to small-scale farmers.”Michael Kitetu (AfriCert, Kenya, 2020)
