Our Clients

SMS enables roasters and chocolate makers to bridge the gap between end-customers and farmers by delivering on ECOM clients efforts at the field level.

We have become an extension of our clients’ sustainability departments by becoming their on-the-ground partners of choice to execute their  vision.  Farmers also receive comprehensive support, including a premium, offered by clients, on sourcing contracts.

As the agency that implements tailored solutions for farmers, we bring the clients’ vision for sustainability to life. We strengthen their supply chain and act as their interface at field level, thereby creating empowered farming communities, dedicated to supplying sustainable agricultural products.

We also reinforce the producers’ commitment to sustainable agricultural practices by offering them a unique connection to the markets. Through our  long-term relationships between specific clients and their suppliers, we support coffee and cocoa smallholders’ empowerment, opening a window into the journey of their products.

Through our extensive field capabilities, we provide clients with greater transparency and farmers with the premiums they need for their households.
