In the same way we approach responsible coffee sourcing, we are committed to a long-term strategy of ethical tea sourcing, which includes helping support farmers and their communities throughout our tea supply chain. We have been working with the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP) since 2005 to collaborate with others in the tea industry, and to make sure that our tea is produced in a socially responsible way.
What We’re Doing Now
Since 2003 we have been proud to support tea-growing communities through the CHAI (Community Health and Advancement Initiative) project with Mercy Corps. Over the past decade, CHAI has directly impacted 80,000 people in more than 200 farming communities in India and Guatemala.
