Sustainable Production Standards for Cattle Farmers
Rainforest Alliance and USAID have presented a new standard aimed at encouraging cattle farms to improve their environmental and social sustainability.
Wednesday, September 1, 2010
This standard, which forms part of the agreements established in DR-CAFTA, will help cattle farmers to implement best practices by voluntarily opting to obtain the the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ certification.
19 associations have received certificates enabling them to export to the USA by complying with international agricultural best practice standards.
A total of 12 farms received certificates to offer agro-tourism services after completing the Agricultural Good Practices (BPA).
The IDB will support the country in developing the capabilities of a system of traceability of beef exports.
A webinar is to be held on good agricultural practices and handling fresh produce delivered by the Ministry of Agriculture of the United States.
