Organic Services is an international strategy and business consultancy for the food industry with particular focus on the organic sector. Drawing on more than 30 years of industry experience, we advise growers and grower groups, traders and certifiers as well as public and private organizations. Our mission: more sustainability and transparency throughout the food supply chain. Our services are interdisciplinary and tailored to the needs of our customers and project partners. We support clients in strategic business development and market studies, certification and accreditation systems and transfer knowledge by organizing conferences and study trips.
For more than 15 years Organic Services has been the global sales partner for Intact’s Ecert® ERP certification management solution, the international market leader.
Being experts in the field of integrity management solutions, we also offer three innovative software tools for various players along the supply chain:
- Check X is a cloud platform that maps and links certification and transaction data along the supply chain. Based on the certified acreage, yield and transaction data, the system calculates a mass balance and shows in real time whether the quantities requested in a specific quality are actually (still) tradable. These plausibility checks reveal food fraud even before the product is sold on the market. By applying Check X, farmer as well as companies can prove the integrity of their products towards their buyers, a great advantage in marketing.
Check X is a generic tool that can be used in all product chains. In the organic sector, the platform is known as Check Organic and prevents conventional products from entering the supply chain as fake high-quality organic products.
- Group Integrity is a tailor-made solution for the professional management of internal control systems of grower groups as well as of companies with contracted smallholders that produce for national or international markets. The online-based tool professionalizes data collection and processing. It prepares grower groups optimally for external audits and for the certification against private and public quality standards.
- Ecert Basic is the standard application of Ecert® for local and small certification bodies. Within a defined workflow, control and certification processes are well structured, and procedures such as deadline management are automated. The clear workflow increases transparency, continuity and comprehensiveness and allows for high quality standards.
The combination of the three systems Check X/ Check Organic, Group Integrity and Ecert Basic considerably facilitates the collaboration between supply chain actors, for example between a farmer group and their external certification body. This creates synergies that can benefit the industry as a whole. The verification of product provenience underscores the integrity of supply chains in the market.
