The Rainforest Alliance is an international non-profit organization, working at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests to make the responsible business the new normal.

During this episode, we take a look at what exactly is the Rainforest Alliance and how companies and products can get their green frog, seal and how following the frog can make a difference. We also talk about the UTZ merger and how farmers can switch to a different crop if not paid fair wages and prices for their products and how the Rainforest Alliance is supporting farmers to make sure they can thrive.
