The objective of this complimentary webinar is to provide an overview of UTZ Certified for coffee, cocoa and tea.
The 45-minute webinar aims to introduce you to UTZ Certified. Now, more than ever, we want to know where our food comes from. We want to know that it is being produced in a responsible way that does not harm the environment nor exploits the workforce. We want to know that is being produced safely to good agricultural practices. UTZ Certified is a worldwide certification program that sets standards for responsible agricultural production and sourcing of Tea, Coffee and Cocoa. One third of all coffee that is sustainably traded is UTZ Certified. The demand for UTZ Certified tea and cocoa is also growing rapidly with major organizations in the producing, manufacturing and retailing sectors choosing UTZ Certified.
Topics covered include:
• An introduction to UTZ Certified
• A brief description of the Code of Conduct and Chain of Custody UTZ Certified standards
• Organizations which can benefit from UTZ Certified
• Steps an organization needs to take to achieve certification
Producers and processors of tea coffee and cocoa; quality and supply chain professionals who need to implement UTZ Certified standards; those responsible for supply chain purchasing and trading of UTZ Certified materials; managers of supply chains who need to gain an understanding of the options for responsible agriculture and sourcing or have an interest in the assessment/auditing certification process.
