TERO, SPP Certification Body

Solidarity with other companies working towards the development of a social economy is a key TERO principle. That’s why our cooperative decided to support SPP development by diversifying its activities and launching the first French speaking SPP certification service.


What is SPP ?

The Small Producers’ Symbol (SPP) is a fair-trade certification system which belongs to Small Producers' Organizations (SPOs).

Rules and norms, such as granted minimum prices or products' composition rules, are determined by SPP bodies, composed of fair-trade cooperatives.

Field audits regularly verify the respect of commitments and are realized by independant certifying bodies.

TERO, Certification Body

Sharing the same values as the SPP, TERO decided to support its development by diversifying its activities and creating a certifying service in 2017.

Though it can also work in English and Spanish, TERO is the first official SPP certifying body to offer its services to French-speaking actors.

By relying on its networks, TERO can identify local professionals, committed to family farming, and train them as inspectors. Such a network of local inspectors guarantees a strong reactivity as well as the inclusion of cultural and contextual aspects in the missions' guideline.
