Climate Change – a good story to tell

Many consumers aren’t aware that by choosing UTZ coffee, cocoa and tea they’re helping farmers adapt to climate change. That’s because UTZ training and climate projects give farmers the knowledge and tools they need to cope with changing rainfall patterns and rising temperatures.

Want to get the climate message out to customers? We have a marketing toolkit to support you!

Take a look at the toolkit, which is full of ideas and resource. It includes famer quotes and a great summary of why climate change is bad news for coffee, tea and cocoa farming and what we’re doing to tackle that.

You can read their views on the project here.
