What is the Producer Guarantee?
The Producer Guarantee is a practical system that farmers’ markets can use to verify that a stallholder displaying their Producer Guarantee at a South Australian famers’ market is recognised as the person who produces the items he/she is selling at that market. South Australia has nine certified Inspectors, each trained to inspect farms and businesses and qualified to issue Producer Guarantee Certificates. The Adelaide Farmers’ Market has presented Producer Guarantee Certificates to sixteen of our Showground Market’s stallholders. We aim to have all stallholders certified within the next three years.
The Producer Guarantee System has been developed by the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market Inc. (ASFM Inc.) with financial assistance from Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) and is the property of ASFM Inc.
How is the SAFMPG good for you, our Customers?
The objective of the Producer Guarantee is to ensure that farmers’ markets fulfil their brand promise – that the food at the farmers’ market is produced by the people who sell it at the farmers’ market. The thorough assessment provides transparency for consumers, producers and markets and assures that informed food choices and purchasing decisions can be made.
