UTZ Certified

UTZ Certified is responsible for creating an open and transparent marketplace for agricultural products. In just over five years UTZ Certified has grown to be one of the leading coffee certification programs worldwide, and is now expanding to become a multi-commodity program. UTZ Certified's vision is to achieve sustainable agricultural supply chains that meet the growing needs and expectations of farmers, the food industry and consumers alike.
With its in-depth Code of Conduct, the program gives independent assurance of sustainable production and sourcing and offers online real-time traceability of agricultural products back to their origin.

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is the least known environmental standard, but the most demanding. It is internationally accepted and establishes how to develop an effective environmental management system. This standard has been conceived to manage the delicate balance between the maintenance of profitability and reduction of environmental impact. With the commitment of the whole organization it allows to achieve both objectives.
This means that some aspects of the business can be identified, having an impact on the environment in order to understand the environmental laws that are meaningful for this situation. The next step consists of developing improvement objectives and a management program passing through periodical reviews. In this way the system can be evaluated regularly and if the regulations are accomplished, the company is ready to sign in the ISO standard.

CCPAE

Ecological and agricultural production also called biological or organic, is a system of production and elaboration of natural agricultural products. The main goal is to obtain high quality food. The techniques used in ecological and agricultural production are respectful towards the environment and the community, because they restrict the use of chemical products (hormones, herbicides, etc.). In addition, ecological and agricultural products do not contain any residue of these substances.
This certification is necessary to guarantee that the ecological and production system of the food gets to the consumer with the maximum safety. For this purpose, CCPAE makes an exhaustive control of the operators through audits of the systems of production and elaboration. The system of production, elaboration and control remains the same for all European Union countries and is regulated by the register: (CE) 834/2007.

USDA ORGANIC

En los Estados Unidos existen dos normas complementarias para la producción orgánica: “Organic Foods Production Act” y las reglas del “National Organic Program” (NOP) incluye requisitos generales para la producción y el comercio de productos orgánicos, el NOP fue desarrollado por el “United States Department of Agriculture” (USDA), tiene reglas para la producción, la transformación y la comercialización. Estas normas están en vigencia desde el 21.10.2002. Todos los productos que llevan una indicación de producción orgánica tienen que cumplir estas normas.

BIO LATINA está acreditada ante el USDA. De las 34 certificadoras internacionales que postularon a la primera ronda de acreditación solo 4 fueron aceptadas, siendo BIO LATINA la única certificadora aceptada de las 8 certificadoras latinoamericanas que se presentaron.
