James Sweeting, managing director of Lincoln & York said, “We are very proud to be expanding our offering of sustainable certifications to include UTZ.”
UTZ is a program and label for sustainable farming of coffee, cocoa and tea. The program supports coffee farmers to develop their farming methods, improve their working conditions and take better care of people and the environment. UTZ plays an important role in providing transparency of the sustainable origin of coffee products.
According to Gina Reay, marketing and communications officer at Lincoln & York, customers were asking for UTZ-certified coffees.
She said, “UTZ is well-recognized across Europe and as we roast private label coffee for more and more brands and operators overseas, it was clear that to satisfy demand we should expand our range of certifications to include UTZ.”
