Small Producer Organizations
A first grade small farmer organisation is a legally formed small farmer organisation which is able to contribute to the social and economic development of its members and its communities and is democratically controlled by its direct members. The majority of members of the organisation are small farmers.
A second or third grade organisation is a small farmer organisation formed by small farmer organisations (members) which are legally affiliated to the 2nd or 3rd grade organisation. The 2nd or 3rd grade is democratically controlled by their direct members. The 2nd or 3rd grade organisation provides central services for its members.
Hired Labour Setups

Multi Estates are companies which structurally depend on hired labour and are prepared to promote workers development. A multi estate has more than one plantation/production site, but one central management is responsible for the labour conditions of the workers on all of the production sites.
Factories are companies which structurally depend on hired labour and are prepared to promote workers development. A factory is one production site where a raw product is transformed into a product with higher value.
