Cotton Farm


Cotton is global, complex and often unpredictable. In this ever-evolving marketplace, the role of compliance professionals and enterprise leadership has become increasingly critical. Among the myriad challenges they face, one issue has risen to the top tier of compliance concerns: forced labor. With the introduction of the UFLPA (Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act) and similar legislation worldwide, the global trade community is faced with the urgent need to verify supply chain integrity. CertainT® offers a comprehensive battery of tests to identify cotton origin, type and authenticity, enabling brands and manufacturers to monitor, with forensic certainty, the integrity of cotton used throughout supply chains, from fiber to finished product.

Genotyping involves analyzing endogenous cotton DNA to identify unique genetic biomarkers that distinguish different cotton families and varietals or distinguish genetically modified cotton. These biomarkers act as molecular signatures that can be used to verify cotton integrity throughout the supply chain.
