Fact Sheet 6: Options for Companies to Address
the Right to Food

Options for companies to address the right to food. Learnings from a pilot audit in Kenya.

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.

“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)
