Advisory Services

SMS implements several models to reach smallholder farmers with training and certification, and to deliver value-added services with the goal of effective management, transparency and accountability to its partners.

In every origin, SMS builds long-lasting capacities and relationships for ongoing farmer training through multi-stakeholder partnerships with development agencies, NGOs, our clients and our banks.

Our Certification & Advisory services allow clients to  better understand the  certificates they buy and to carry out comprehensive programs customized to farmers’ needs. This transactional approach helps to build enduring relationships with rural communities.
