How to use the Online Traceability System in GIP
1.1. Why is Traceability important?
Reporting purchases, sales and processing activities of UTZ certified products is a requirement of the Chain of Custody Standard and therefore mandatory.
By using the Traceability system, we can assure that UTZ certified end products are physically or administratively linked to sustainably produced crops and can be followed through the whole supply chain. The UTZ logo on the final product package is a proof for consumers that the company supports sustainable farming by sourcing UTZ certified coffee, cocoa, tea or hazelnuts.
Finally, reflecting all transactions in the Traceability System and keeping activities and stock up-to-date allows UTZ to accurately report on UTZ volumes in the market.
