Bird Friendly Coffee Certification

For your Bird Friendly® inspection and certification, growers should contact one of the following agencies.

These companies are organic certification agencies that appear on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's accreditation list for the National Organic Program. This accreditation provides an important "first cut" for us in terms of providing quality control and verifiable audit trails.

In addition, the inspectors working with these agencies have been trained by Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center (SMBC) staff in how to evaluate shade coffee systems. The companies listed have all signed agreements with the SMBC, and can arrange for an inspector to visit your farm or cooperative.

Since Bird Friendly® certification also requires organic certification, combining the inspections may save you money—all these companies also do organic certifications.
