About UTZ Certified
UTZ Certified is a program which protects the environment and farming communities whilst helping ensure long term sustainability of supply. It sets standards for the sustainable farming of cocoa, coffee and tea which assure:
- safe and healthy working conditions
- protection of the environment
- no child labour
- good agricultural practices.
The UTZ label shows your cocoa, coffee or tea can be traced from the grower to the final consumer product.
The certification system is based on a strict Code of Conduct – covering social and economic criteria for responsible farming – coupled with chain of custody requirements and an advanced track and trace system which links products back to certified growers.
UTZ chain of custody certification gives assurance of the integrity of the product through to its final delivery point.
