This company sells UTZ certified chocolate, promoting fair and sustainable cocoa production. This ensures the cocoa is sourced and produced sustainably on farms with safe working conditions. However unlike Fairtrade certification, UTZ does not offer a minimum or guaranteed price, and the environmental standards of UTZ Certified are far weaker than those of either Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance.
