UTZ Certified / Duurzaamheid Werkt

Do you want to be involved in the
international dynamics of sustainability, where ideals and pragmatism meet?
UTZ CERTIFIED is one of the largest
sustainability programs for coffee, tea and cocoa in the world. Brands which
have committed to buying UTZ CERTIFIED products are worldwide market leaders who
buy their raw materials in large volumes. Sara Lee, Heinz, MARS and IKEA are,
amongst many others, UTZ CERTIFIED partners.
The UTZ CERTIFIED label stands for
an improved position of farmers on the market because they have been trained in
improving agricultural and business practices which leads to a better quality
product, higher productivity and a more efficient use of means. Environmental
and social aspects are also equally addressed within the UTZ CERTIFIED
sustainability program. This way, farmers become more professional which enables
them to negotiate a better price for a better product.
Coffee beans, cocoa beans and tea
leaves travel a long road from farm to cup. UTZ CERTIFIED has a unique online
traceability system which can trace products back through the production chain,
creating traceability and transparency. Through the traceability system UTZ can
safeguard that products have been sustainably sourced, giving brands and
consumers the assurance they need.
Since its foundation in 2002, UTZ
CERTIFIED has developed into a multi-commodity program for coffee, cocoa, tea
and palm oil with the ambition to expand into other products in the coming
years. UTZ CERTIFIED is headquartered in Amsterdam with representatives in the
US, Japan and Switzerland, and works closely with its partner network in Africa,
Asia and Latin America. UTZ CERTIFIED is looking for a new team member in:
