About SuCCESS Code
How was the code developed
The code is developed as far as possible in accordance with globally accepted principles and local stakeholder involvement with clear social, economic and environmental objectives. The code has been developed by Solidaridad with support from Jayant Agro, BASF & Arkema & inputs received from castor experts, universities and suppliers.
What is innovative in the Castor code?
Ownership: Code is developed, owned and managed by Indian Castor industry stakeholders
Smallholders: Brings in smallholders into sustainability fold. These groups were so far not part of the sustainable supply chains in India.
Support: Invests in highly experienced field staff and field offices to assist the producers to be compliant with the code.
Why We Need A Castor Code?
More and more consumers globally are insisting that the products they pay for are sourced sustainably. This is no longer a western phenomenon. The Indian consumer is also becoming more aware and will soon demand that brands deliver sustainably sourced products. Which consumer would not like a safe product, which has been sourced in a way that has a positive impact on the livelihood of thousands of people and also the environment?
