UTZ CERTIFIED Good Inside (15/9/2009)

Certified sustainable cocoa

UTZ CERTIFIED was founded in 2002 as an independent, international non-profit organization. It has been a pioneer in the field of certification and traceability of the coffee supply chain. The UTZ CERTIFIED initiative was established to promote an open and transparent marketplace for agricultural products.

Now, with Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate's impetus and support it has successfully developed a sustainable model for cocoa too. Through the UTZ CERTIFIED scheme, credible training and development programmes are provided for farmers, co-operatives and producers to ensure that their cocoa is produced in a professional way with socially and environmentally appropriate growing practices and efficient farm management. Ultimately, it allows buyers to demonstrate their commitment to creating a transparent and sustainable supply chain, and gives consumers the assurance that the products they buy have been produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
