1. Full Coverage. In the Eleven Rivers Certification Scheme, companies certify their modules of agriculture production, packaging and shelter facilities.

2. Comprehensive Scope. The Certification Scheme is not only focused on food safety: it also seeks to comply with the best practices in the industry, including, process quality, traceability and social responsibility.

3. Continued Verification. Participating growers agree to be subject to a certification per agriculture season; and to a weekly verification of compliance, performed by independent certification and verification organizations.

Eleven Rivers cover the fresh fruit and vegetable sector grown for human consumption; particularly, the certification scheme defines the basic criteria applicable to fresh fruits and vegetables grown in open field or in protected facilities.
