'On the way to PlanetProof' certification has grown rapidly as a certificate and has become a requirement for Dutch supermarkets to ensure produce is produced in a sustainable manner. At the same time, AgriPlace Chain has expanded its network of fresh produce buyers across Europe rapidly.
"As On the way to PlanetProof has grown in importance, so have requests from our users to build an interface and automatically collect and validate certificate information from their platform," says Nico Broersen -Managing Director of AgriPlace. ‘’We were therefore also very pleased that SMK has collaborated with us to realize our connection quickly.’’
‘’AgriPlace Chain is a good example of an industry solution which is making managing compliance more simple, we are happy to contribute to this simplification through supporting this interface between the On the way to PlanetProof database and AgriPlace’’, according to Stefanie de Kool Program manager of SMK.
This helps our users by only having to introduce a On the way to PlanetProof number once and always having certificate information available. If the status of a producer changes this is immediately reflected in AgriPlace Chain.
"We automatically keep certificate, product and company information up to date based on the On the way to PlanetProof Identifier for an organization. This also means that it is much easier to retrieve certification upfront and check a multitude of producers without having to request information."
