We Care

Did you ever wonder that all the food, food products and food derivatives that the world eats is a gift to us from farmers. Farmers who sow seeds, nurture, water, harvest, screen, segregate and finally sell to the next layer in the food production chain.

So shouldn’t they be the highest paid in this production chain? Shouldn’t they be the ones gaining monetarily from the scores of food products sold off counters across the world. But do they ?

In fact, these unsung heroes have to bear harsh weather, undergo tremendous physical toil, many a times endure the pains of heavy labour, and sometimes suffer losses because of natural calamities and situations not in his control.

This group people who haven’t got their well deserved dues for year are finally being recognised slowly and steadily for their contribution. Fair Trade Practices are coming up and we have sworn to do our bit.

What is UTZ ?

(Content taken from UTZ official website) UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ program enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.

Through the UTZ-program farmers grow better crops, generate more income and create better opportunities while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources. Now and in the future.

And that tastes a lot better.

When companies buy UTZ Certified coffee, cocoa or tea they are helping build a better future. And when you buy products from such companies you contribute towards making a difference around the world.

UTZ Certified wants sustainable farming to become the most natural thing in the world. And they on the right track because an increasing share of the world’s coffee, cocoa and tea is grown responsibly.

So when you buy these and other UTZ-certified products, they are able to support more and more farmers, their workers and their families achieve their ambitions.

Strict requirements, close monitoring

Coffee, cocoa and tea products do not get the UTZ label easily. The compliance with strict requirements by UTZ certified farms and businesses, is closely monitored by independent third parties. These requirements include Good Agricultural Practices and farming management, safe and healthy working conditions, abolition of child labor and protection of the environment.



What is FSC ?

(Content taken from FSC official website) FSC, Forest Stewardship Council, works to improve forest management worldwide, and through certification creates an incentive for forest owners and managers to follow best social and environmental practices.

This incentive brings direct benefits to the forest, such as protecting biodiversity, indigenous peoples' rights, worker’s rights, and areas of significant environmental or cultural importance. FSC provides a connection between the forest and the end user, ensuring that products with the FSC label uphold principles and criteria which bring the highest social and environmental benefits.

FSC certification can positively impact workers and communities, shift governance processes globally and change economic and environmental conditions in the forest. This impact improves conditions such conflict over land tenure and use, worker's health and safety, biodiversity conservation, protection of endangered species and participatory forest policy.

By working to promote environmentally and socially beneficial forest management, FSC helps both local communities and society at large to enjoy long-term benefits of managing forests in a responsible way. As the world's most respected forest certification scheme, FSC is a global system with certificates issued in all forest types around the world.

FSC, Vision :

The world’s forests meet the social, ecological, and economic rights and needs of the present generation without compromising those of future generations.

FSC, Mission :

The Forest Stewardship Council A.C. (FSC) shall promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests.



What is Gluten Free ?

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes foods containing gluten. Gluten is a protein complex found in wheat, barley, rye and triticale. Gluten-free food is normally seen as a diet for celiac disease, but people with a gluten allergy (an unrelated disease) should also avoid wheat and related grains.

Pure chocolate is completely gluten free. Manufacturers, however, add various additives to improve taste. Even for chocolate that does not have additives that contain gluten, there is little possibility of contamination with gluten, from the use of machines which previously processed gluten containing food. Nevertheless, several vendors produce chocolate labeled "gluten free". Replaze is a GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE.
