UTZ is a programme and quality seal for sustainable cultivation. The term “UTZ” comes from the language of the Mayas and means “good”. Sustainable cultivation supports farmers, workers and their families in achieving their goals, and at the same time contributes to protecting our natural resources – now and in the future.
For Griesson - de Beukelaer as a family business, sustainable thinking and action are a matter of course. Just as we have passed our company down from one generation to the next for over 100 years, so too we want to look after and maintain the livelihood of future generations. For this reason we buy UTZ certified cocoa for all our branded products, and thus sustainably support socially responsible and environmentally friendly cocoa cultivation.
Benefits for our customers
When Griesson - de Beukelaer buys 100 % UTZ certified cocoa for all its branded products, our customers always know that this has been cultivated sustainably. So for our customers, the UTZ seal means not only unadulterated enjoyment of delicious chocolate confectionery, but also the opportunity of making a small contribution to supporting cocoa farmers and protecting nature in the producing countries with every purchase.
