Check the origin of your coffee or chocolate
Traceability is one of the foundations on which the UTZ program is based. The ability to trace the origin of commodities provides reassurance that crops have been produced according to the standards and that buyers contribute to better farming. To check the origin and learn more about the plantations where the coffee or cacao beans in your IKEA coffee or chocolate tablet were grown, visit www.utz.org/IKEA.
Already the Maya and Aztecs...
The cacao tree seeds were first cultivated, among others, by Maya and Aztec Indians, using them in sauces and beverages. The bitter beans are fermented and roasted, then sweetened with sugar and other ingredients to make what is referred to as chocolate today. Milk chocolate is chocolate with added milk powder or condensed milk. The UTZ Certified CHOKLAD LJUS milk chocolate bar with 30% cacao content, is delicately smooth, rich and creamy, as loved by chocolate connoisseurs worldwide.
