As standard systems seek to expand the supply of certified products and their collective impact, they face the increasing challenge of reaching out to less organized producers or to producers that are organized according to other group models. As standard systems move into this new territory, it is vital to understand local options, local practices and locally appropriate models for grouping producers. The main objective of this study was to ascertain what sort of producer groups exist and what their role could be in including currently marginalized producers in certification schemes.
