Sustainability is important for everyone. After all, our future is at stake. In order to be able to make a substantial contribution to sustainability, UTZ CERTIFIED has adopted a practical approach, working together with existing brands. The manufacturers of these brands need raw materials on a large scale – raw materials that are produced by farmers in developing countries. By increasing the sustainability of these raw materials, we are able to raise the standard of living of a large number of farming communities. This allows you to keep enjoying the brands you are familiar with and at the same time contribute to a more sustainable world. Choose brands with the UTZ CERTIFIED label.
By working with a strict Code of Conduct, UTZ CERTIFIED sets stringent requirements for farmers when it comes to the sustainable growing of coffee, cocoa and tea. Farmers are trained in the area of agricultural practices, labor conditions and environmental management and are checked by independent third parties. The UTZ CERTIFIED tracking system subsequently guarantees that the products you buy have actually been grown and harvested in a responsible manner. Because this is how we – together with you – can make a difference!
