Perform Gap Analysis

The Bonsucro Calculator, part of Bonsucro Connect, calculates compliance with the Production Standard. Fill it out to see how the mill and farms compare. A gap analysis between current results and the Standard is the ideal starting point, after which a work plan can be developed to address the potential gaps.

Establish Road Map to Certification

Define work plan and work with mill managers and farmers/agriculture manager to close the gaps highlighted in the gap analysis. Regularly monitor progress towards sustainability.
