LEAF Chain of Custody

The LEAF Mar­que Chain of Cus­tody allows all the sites that han­dle LEAF Mar­que cer­ti­fied prod­ucts in the sup­ply chain to be mapped. Farm­ers declare what they pro­duce and buy­ers and proces­sors declare their ingre­di­ents in man­u­fac­tured prod­ucts and their sup­pli­ers. Fur­ther along the sup­ply chain, dis­trib­u­tors, traders and retail­ers declare their sup­pli­ers. Begin­ning with farm­ers there is then auto­mat­ic and inde­pen­dent con­fir­ma­tion that all prod­ucts in the chain have come from approved sources. LEAF Mar­que buy­ers and sell­ers are able to request revi­sions of trad­ing rela­tion­ships and trans­ac­tion details; these are record­ed in a time­line of events with each trad­ing rela­tion­ship or trans­ac­tion record.
