As a leading provider of chain of custody certification, BM TRADA delivers UTZ certifications to help producers demonstrate the sustainable farming of their cocoa, coffee, and tea products.     

The UTZ Certified program protects the environment and farming communities while helping to safeguard the long-term sustainability of supply. It encourages organizations to develop and demonstrate long term relationships with their supply chain which act in the investment of best sustainability practises. 

It sets standards for the responsible production and sourcing of cocoa, coffee, and tea, which ensures safe and healthy working conditions including no child labor, good agricultural practices, and the protection of the environment.  

The certification system is based on a strict Code of Conduct that covers social and economic criteria for responsible farming. 

This is coupled with chain of custody requirements and an advanced track and trace system that links products back to certified growers, providing assurance of the integrity of the product from producer to consumer.
