Summary

The paper provides insights on growth trends and geographic presence of seven ISEAL member schemes i.e. BCI, Bonsucro, Fairtrade, Global Coffee Platform, Rainforest Alliance, RSPO and UTZ that are leading global agricultural standards across seven commodities i.e. bananas, cocoa, coffee, cotton, palm oil, sugarcane and tea. The focus is on trends and presence in producing and exporting countries where these schemes are adopted, with a specific interest in presence in low and lower-income classified countries. ISEAL member schemes area under certification is expanding as well as they have a strong and growing presence globally with their certification footprint strongest in cocoa, coffee, tea and palm oil. Nearly half of the global certified production of the seven commodities takes place in low and lower-middle income countries.
