UTZ CERTFIED IMPACT REPORT. January 2014. Combining results from 24 external impact studies and data from UTZ Certified. The studies summarized in this report examine the impact of UTZ certification in the field. They indicate that
implementing good agricultural practices on UTZ certified farms results in higher yields and better quality crops. The
impact of training on the UTZ Code of Conduct is significant in helping farmers to improve their knowledge and adopt
professional farming practices like record keeping and efficient use of fertilizer and pesticides. As a result, farmers
can increase their income earning capacity.
