This is where the SSI-I comes in: to bridge the gap between production and profit for the
sustainability of the sector. Driving systematic change that leads to long-term positive impact.
Working with a pre-competitive, multi-stakeholder platform, SSI-I addresses the need for sustainable spice
production in India. Working towards food-safe, sustainable spices produced at scale for both domestic and export markets – and leading to improved livelihoods, reduced environmental footprints and better health and safety of farmers.
We’re setting the foundation for 25% of all Indian spices to be sustainably grown, verified and traceable by 2025, and to meet global food safety norms.
We’re promoting the market demand for sustainable spices that leads to sustainable productionat field level.
We’re advocating change in policy and enforcement by embedding sustainable spice production in the agricultural extension service framework in India.
We’re facilitating technology-enabled extension services to help farmers make informed decisions based on real-time access to farming practices, weather conditions, alternative methodologies, risk assessments, financial products, and data-based analytics.
