When you see the UTZ label on a product, this means the company supports sustainable farming by sourcing UTZ or Rainforest Alliance certified cocoa, tea or hazelnuts or UTZ certified coffee.
UTZ certified ingredients are grown by farmers who have been trained to implement better farming practices, with respect for people and the planet. Farmers are regularly audited to ensure they comply with the sustainability standards of the UTZ program.
The logos refer to the coffee, cocoa, tea or hazelnuts in a product, not any additional ingredients such as sugar or milk.
There are several different ways that companies can source UTZ certified ingredients. Find out more here: Traceability Levels
