UTZ stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet.
The UTZ program enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment. Through the UTZ program farmers grow better crops, generate more income and create better opportunities while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources.
The UTZ program began with certification of coffee in 2002, and has since then expanded to tea (including rooibos and other herbal teas), cocoa and hazelnuts.
Consumers are increasingly demanding to know where their products come from, and that they have been sourced in a responsible manner. Joining an internationally renowned certification scheme shows your customers your commitment to both people and the environment, and helps create a world where sustainable farming is the norm.
1. Secure your supply: Certification as part of a sustainability program involves people at all stages of the supply chain. Together they invest – directly or indirectly – in farming practices that lead to a better output product, helping you to build a good quality, reliable supply at competitive prices.
2. Communicate your commitment to sustainability: Working with UTZ provides independent assurance of your sustainable sourcing strategy. Research shows that the majority of consumers expect businesses to take care of the planet and society as a whole. With UTZ, sustainable products can be traced throughout the whole supply chain, so you can easily assure your customers that certified products are linked to certified sources, allowing you to make a on or off pack sustainability claim on your products.
3. Increase operational efficiency and traceability: Chain of Custody certification will encourage you to increase your operational efficiency. Traceability is one of the foundations on which UTZ certification is based. All certified members, from the farmer to the last buyer, register their sales and processing activities of pure certified products in the UTZ traceability system.
We certify the entire trade and processing chain in Switzerland for you. You have the opportunity to label your products with the UTZ logo. Labeling your products as UTZ certified attracts socially conscious buyers, retailers and consumers. If you wish to become UTZ certified, please contact us now.
