Fact Sheet 3: Food Security Standard on the Right Track
The first tests showed: The criteria of the Food Security Standard (FSS) are suited to be integrated into existing sustainability standards. Implemented in regular audits, they deliver a detailed picture about the compliance with the Human Right to Food at local level.
Tests have been made in Malaysia and Guatemala. First learning experiences were gained regarding the auditability of the FSS criteria and the overall audit procedures.
The level of interest for the FSS-project is generally high. Producers of agricultural commodities, voluntary certification schemes and certification bodies are widely open for testing and providing feedback on the FSS. Local stakeholders have shown a broad acceptance regarding a future application of the FSS.
