Edit Text: “An estimated 500 million smallholder farmers produce 70% of the worlds staple food crops. Many of these people are made vulnerable through poverty, conflict, climate change and lack of access to resource. The 25 million smallholder farmers that produce most of the world’s coffee are part of this larger, global community and share their risks and challenges. If we, as a prosperous, unified and committed coffee community can build a sustainable platform for our farmers, we would have helped build the blueprint for sustainable smallholder agriculture across all crops, countries and communities. This blueprint could be key is solving global food security for future generations. Through the Sustainable Coffee Challenge, this could be our legacy.” Konrad Brits, Chief Executive Officer

Edit Text: “UTZ has been working towards better farming and a better future for the past 13 years. Through certification we have seen significant impacts in the lives of farmers and their workers, but we have also seen that some of the problems they face cannot be addressed through certification alone. Issues such as child labor, wages or the impact of climate change require a cross sectoral approach. This means that only when UTZ works together with producers, NGOs, governments and buyers, can these issues really be tackled. Building on our experience and reach we are expanding our work to look at how we can join forces with others to make a lasting impact on these sectoral issues in order to create a better future for everyone. We are proud to be part of the sustainable coffee challenge – an important concrete example of a cross sectoral approach making a lasting difference.” Han de Groot, UTZ Executive Director
