SCORE Certification Model

SCORE is the certification model FLOCERT has in place for Small Producer Organizations, Hired Labour and Contract Production. The main principles of SCORE are focusing on core Fairtrade requirements, empowering producers to decide on their own development path and better reflecting the realities of individual producer organizations. SCORE makes a distinction between Core and Development Compliance Criteria: while compliance is required with all Core Compliance Criteria at all times, for Development Compliance Criteria an average score of at least 3.0 is needed.
