India is home to the second-largest number of producers engaged in our sustainability management systems. Therefore, having a local presence was a must to provide on-the-ground support and empower both our members and producers in the country.
During 2017, we initiated member meetings which provided a unique opportunity for those companies with a presence in the country to engage with each other and receive customised support. We have also significantly increased capacity-building workshops for producers in India with attendance numbers doubling since last year.
