How does trustea relate to other similar credentials and programs such as ETP/The Rainforest Alliance/UTZ etc.?

The trustea code has largely been modeled on current internationally recognized standards and yet it is developed, owned and operated out of India by Indian stakeholders. The Rainforest Alliance is the Technical Partner for the program. trustea can be benchmarked against ETP, The Rainforest Alliance and UTZ and will show the steps to be taken by producers to move from compliance with the trustea code to other certification codes, if they so desire.
