The FB&A Sector has recently drafted the dossiers for 5 products for the Level 1 SMRS. The dossiers are open to members for review and comment for 2 weeks. At that time Category Sustainability Profiles will be created for the 5 products and then the CSPs will be open for comment by members. The Level 2 SMRS prototypes have been sent to the external review panels. The documents and their comments will be available for comment by members and participants prior to going to a public review process.

FB&A is working on reaching out to more NGO, Producer, and Academic partners to assist in sector work.

We will be hosting a face-to-face meeting Sept 29 and 30 in Savannah, GA. Be on the lookout for an invitation going out very soon.
