Confectionery News: UTZ becomes International Cocoa Initiative’s first nonprofit partner
Confectionery News – Certification program UTZ has become the first non-industry partner of the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). ICI – whose partners include Mondelez, Mars and Ferrero – recently allowed civil society organizations to join as ‘nonprofit contributing partners’. ICI already allows NGOs, academics and civil society members on its board, but previously only manufacturers, processors, traders and retailers could be contributing partners.
