Please note, that all producer stocks from Pre-merger UTZ and Pre-merger RA accounts will be will be converted to Green leaves using a backward conversion of 0.22. For Pre-merger UTZ SCAs, there will be no backward conversion, however, the variety will become the sub-product and the sub-product will become the variety.

With convert, you can reflect your processing activities and change the product into a derivative[GR1] . Conversion is only allowed in direction of physical processing (forward).

Selling Mark 

A Selling Mark must be selected when reporting the processing activity from Green Leaf to Made Tea. Please be aware that this information cannot be updated after. If the entered information is incorrect, the reported action needs to be reversed and reported again.

Adding a Selling Mark is always done in the Commodities tab. When reporting a mix of tea for example, when bulking the tea, a selling mark needs to be entered. If the selling mark is not listed, a new selling mark needs to be entered first under the Commodities tab before reporting the mix.

First you will have to click on the add button as shown in the screenshot below
