3S stands for Sustainable Supply System. 3S is a Management Information System initiated by the Sustainable Nut Initiative (SNI). It is a secure, online software platform to manage and share product, process and supplier information, from raw material to finished product. 3S helps monitor and manage value chains by linking data from all actors. Benchmarking and impact analysis in the entire supply chain provides essential management information. Depending on agreements between the partners in the chain, information is made available to each other. This type of information is key to steer productivity and to improve quality.
