Commitment To Quality & International Standards
Santal Valley upholds a commitment to quality, leveraging over two decades of founder Jon Naupa’s agronomic expertise in cropping and value-adding/processing techniques. This has ensured the development of high-quality agricultural products for global markets.
Santal Valley adheres to all standards for international commodity/agricultural trade. Some examples include:
- Santal Valley complies with the rigourous quality and standards put in place by the Vanuatu Kava Act of 2014, which regulates the quality of kava exports.
- Santal Valley’s kava production takes a total quality approach to maintain kava export quality certification, from planting to harvesting and processing.
- Santal Valley works to Geneva Food Standards for sandalwood (ISO 3518).
- Santal Valley participated in the first trial of the electronic single window system for the Vanuatu Government, connecting our products to global markets. This online system enables timely evaluation and management of import and export certificates, licenses and permits.
