Joint Field Assessment (FarmFinder and UNDP)
Members of FarmFinder and the United Nations Development Programme conduct a joint field assessment on a producer’s operations in Barbados. The assessment is the first step in FarmFinder’s on-boarding process to have producers items marketed on the website. Ares covered in the assessment were:
Site Requirements and Location
Buildings, Storage and Equipment
Harvesting, Field Packaging and Product Handling Practices
Storage and Transport
Traceability and Record Keeping
The next step in the process focuses on quality assurance and piloting a basic traceability system with the producer, to ensure that he is a better positions to analyze his inputs, while enhancing the quality assurance framework in the supply chain.
