Products compatible with Rainforest Alliance certification program now highlighted on CABI BioProtection Portal

Rainforest Allaince logo

We are delighted to announce that the Rainforest Alliance’s frog logo is now visible on the CABI BioProtection Portal. Users will see it alongside a range of biocontrol products that are allowed for use under the requirements of the Rainforest Alliance certification program. The Rainforest Alliance’s little green frog is a symbol of environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

The Rainforest Alliance joined the CABI BioProtection Portal in 2021 as a sponsor. Following the sponsorship, we took the opportunity to work together more closely. As a result of our collaboration, users browsing the portal will now see the Rainforest Alliance logo against the products on the portal that Rainforest Alliance certified growers are permitted to use.

We have benefited greatly from our relationship with the Rainforest Alliance. Together, we have been working to enhance the functionality of the portal. Recently our users have been asking, via an on-site voting form, to see which products meet specific market standards. Our work with the Rainforest Alliance showing their certification compatibility is a strong start to addressing this.

Make sure to check out the Alliance’s widely known logo now displayed on compatible products. These include various products used on coffee in Brazil and on cocoa in Ghana, plus, many more.

Look out for products on the CABI BioProtection Portal that include the frog logo, shown above, that are compatible with the Rainforest Alliance certification program

Rainforest Alliance certification is one of the biggest endorsements of sustainability – a core mission of the CABI BioProtection Portal. This iconic organization works at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests. It connects diverse allies, including farmers, forest communities, companies, and consumers. Together, we hope to start addressing some of the most pressing social and environmental challenges of today.

In working with the CABI BioProtection Portal, the Rainforest Alliance brings a globally recognized brand to this bioprotection resource. It also contributes a wealth of field knowledge about protecting and restoring nature.

The Rainforest Alliance sponsorship helps to expand the expertise of the CABI BioProtection Portal, a rapidly growing resource. María Angélica Bonilla, Senior Officer Pesticides and Alternatives at the Rainforest Alliance, said, “For the Rainforest Alliance, collaborating with CABI on this platform is an exciting opportunity for advancing the transition to a more regenerative agriculture, bringing producers closer to available biological control alternatives, as part of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies, key to reducing overall pesticides use.”
