Guidance for Working with the Rainforest Alliance Mass Balance Sourcing Program
Companies are encouraged to maintain fully segregated supply chains whenever possible, as this is the best way to achieve full traceability from farm to end-product and to link product contents to origin. But because full segregation isn’t possible for all commodity supply chains, the Mass Balance Sourcing Program was created. This will enable manufacturers, brands, and retailers to support the field impacts of certification without the need to change manufacturing processes to comply with the requirements of segregation.
