24/12/2013 - 08:27
United Coffee UK & Ireland has passed the Sustainable Agricultural Network (SAN) Rainforest Alliance Chain of Custody Audit Programme.

During the audit process, which took place at United Coffee’s Dartford Roastery – which roasts 8,000 tonnes of coffee a year – United Coffee had to demonstrate how its certified products are handled during the various stages of coffee production including; reception, processing, mixing, storing, packaging, delivery, transport and resale.

By passing the audit, United Coffee has the seal of approval that its coffee is sustainable and traceable from coffee source to finalised product; through certified records, validations and training and management system records.

Rahul Ghosh, director of Roastery operations at United Coffee UK & Ireland said: “We’re continually improving our sustainable coffee offering and the high scores we’ve gained in this latest audit enforces our commitment to quality and traceability of our raw materials. A lot of hard work has gone into achieving these standards and I would like to thank our team at the Roastery for achieving such a great result for our first SAN audit.”
