UTZ

Farms and cooperatives use UTZ certification to prove that they grow their coffee, tea or cocoa professionally and with care for their local communities and the environment.

Producers comply with the Code of Conduct, which sets criteria for efficient farm management and socially and environmentally responsible production of coffee, cocoa and tea.

UTZ’s training on good agricultural and business practices enables producers to reduce costs and increase yields without compromising the environment or the people involved. Producers are inspected annually by independent auditors to ensure compliance with the Code of Conduct.

UTZ offers online real-time traceability providing brands and retailers with a tool to incorporate and credibly demonstrate responsible sourcing practices.

The head office of UTZ is in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
