About UTZ certified Coffee
Today’s consumers are increasingly demanding that their coffee is produced responsibly, with care for people and the environment. This means appropriate and modest use of fertilizers, pesticides, water and energy. It means children of coffee farmers sent to school rather than put to work. Farm workers given decent labor rights, housing and healthcare. And farmers empowered to act as professionals and become better businessmen and women. More about why sustainable coffee is better for the environment. All this, as well as the same good taste, quality and price consumers are used to. Together with key players in the industry, including farmers, roasters and retailers, UTZ is committed to creating a sustainable, viable coffee market. How? Through an efficient certification and traceability program for more responsible coffee production that meets the needs of both producers and markets.
