In March 2012 Craigmore Plantations (India) Private Limited got certified by UTZ, which is a Netherlands based certification body for coffee and tea plantations. UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for workers, their families and for the environment. The UTZ program enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.
The basic philosophy of UTZ Certified therefore goes perfectly with that of Craigmore Plantations, which believes in doing “business with ethics”. As part of the UTZ Certified framework, the company lays special emphasis on Ecosystem conservation, protection of wildlife and their habitat, water conservation, better soil management, better living conditions, a healthy and safe work environment for its workers and a sustainable business model that is focused on the long-term future of the plantations and its workers.
In the certification audit of the UTZ program, Craigmore Plantations (India) Private Limited achieved a perfect score of 100% compliance with UTZ principles which in itself is a remarkable achievement and underlines the company’s commitment to sustainable and ethical business practices.
