The UTZ certificationprogram enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.
Through the UTZ certification program, farmers grow better crops, generate more income and create better opportunities while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources.
Labeling your products (coffee, cocoa, tea and hazelnuts) as UTZ certified attracts socially conscious buyers, retailers and consumers.
Control Union Certifications is an official UTZ approved certification body with years of experience.
We certify producers and producer groups to the UTZ code of conduct and/or supply chain members (such as millers, manufacturers and processors) to the UTZ chain of custody standard. We can also offer this UTZ certification for commodities worldwide.
Chain of custody certification is required for all those acting within a supply chain who obtain legal ownership, physically handle and/or make product claims regarding UTZ compliance.
