Training is key

Training is key to the success of the UTZ programs:

  • Farmers engage in training courses on the implementation of sustainable agricultural practices.
  • Certification bodies attend training courses on how to thoroughly audit to the UTZ standards and rules.
  • Trainers are trained to increase the impact of their courses by using a proven didactic model.
  • Employees of UTZ continuously develop themselves through training courses, in order to improve their performance.
