SAAFoST Cape Branch: Event Notice

Dear SAAFoST Cape Branch member,

SAAFoST's Cape Branch committee invites you to a talk entitled:

"Sustainability UTZ Certified. Better Farming. Better Future"

UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ programme helps farmers learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take greater care of their children and the environment. Worldwide (and in South Africa) there are many farmers, traders and manufacturers in the coffee, cocoa and tea sectors who have joined this programme which teaches farmers to grow better crops, generate more income and create greater opportunities, while safeguarding the environment and securing the Earth's natural resources.. A recent report has shown that certified coffee producers tend to see increases in the quality and volume of their yield, and that they usually receive a better price for their products than non-certified producers.
