Buyers at the end of agriculture supply chains want to know that the coffee, cocoa or other crops they're selling meet stringent quality and sustainability standards. Grameen Foundation is using TaroWorks software on mobile devices and the Salesforce cloud database to help programs certify farmers so they have better access to markets and to ultimately increase their income.

This presentation will review how the programs use the basic certification cycle (observation, evaluation, re-inspection), and delve into how mobile technology helps farmers certify their produce around the world by decreasing the time it takes for inspections to be completed and reported. Additionally, we will review how more advanced programs have managed multiple certifications for farmers in one system. Program examples will come from coconuts in the Philippines and coffee in Latin America.
