What does UTZ CERTIFIED mean?
The name “Utz” has its origin in the Mayan language and means “good”. UTZ CERTIFIED is one of the largest sustainability programs in coffee growing. In addition to coffee, UTZ CERTIFIED has also developed sustainability standards for tea and cocoa. As part of the program, farmers are trained with regard to social and ecological criteria. The most important requirements for UTZ CERTIFIED cocoa are laid down in a code of conduct: For example, safe and healthy working conditions, no forced or child labor, accident prevention and measures to preserve natural habitats. This enables them to work more professionally and in a more environmentally friendly way. The living conditions of the farmers are being improved.

What is the Fairtrade Cocoa Program?

The Fairtrade Cocoa Program (FAIRTRADE COCOA PROGRAM) is about purchasing process of the raw material cocoa, which is required to manufacture of chocolate or chocolate products.

Cocoa is mainly grown in smallholder agriculture structures. For them trading according to Fairtrade standards means a more stable income and also additional income, which they invest in projects of their choice. Fairtrade supports the advanced training of cocoa producers in the form of training courses tailored to their needs. As a result the cocoa farmers could then sell more cocoa, so that they can re-invest in their cooperatives, in the region and thus in their own future.

If a company purchases Fairtrade certified cocoa, they are allowed to print the Fairtrade cocoa program seal on the product.
