Human, agricultural, forestry and livestock activities are included among those with a greater economic, social and environmental impact. To ensure the sustainability of the agricultural activities, some endeavors innovated the concept of sustainable agriculture, among these the Agricultural Certification.

The Agricultural Certification is undoubtedly one of the stronger and more efficient strategies currently applied. It is a mechanism of an economic, environmental and social nature, encompassing the demands of the consumer market and creating differential products in terms of acceptance and price, differentiating products and producers.

In the process of evaluation and certification, rural property or the product produced therein should be evaluated within established standards based on sound scientific information and free from ideological criteria. The sustainability of agricultural ecosystems, the welfare of rural workers, their social integration and the health of human and animal populations should be the guiding principles for the certification.

Concerned about these principles, José Carlos Grossi received the Agricultural Certification in 2005. In his point of view, conservation practices, the maintaining of the legal reserve of native vegetation, good working conditions on farms and protection of headwaters and margins of water bodies are essential to good agriculture.

On farms that earned UTZ Certified and Rainforest Alliance certifications, crop management is done by closely following the procedures established by the certifiers, respecting each of the criteria contained in the manual of sustainable norms. In all audits already undertaken, the farms received high scores, showing the great commitment to good agricultural and social practices.

The aim of the Agricultural Certificate Program in José Carlos Grossi’s farms is to recognize and encourage responsible agriculture, ensuring compliance with social, environmental and economic aspects of the properties, thus joining the adequacy of the production systems with the protection of biodiversity and socioeconomic improvement, not only on the farms themselves, but also in regions where they are located. Ultimately, certification helps in finding the balance between agriculture and environmental conservation.
