Transparency across the supply chain

We’re increasing transparency across our global supply chain to help accelerate the transformation of the entire tea industry.

We like to know exactly where our tea comes from. Since September 2019, we’ve let everyone see for themselves where we source all our teas.

United for change

Our brands connect us to millions of people who depend on tea production and the ecosystems they share – including on 750,000 small farms, mostly in Africa and Asia.

Working with NGOs and other partners enables us to tackle wider social and environmental issues on an even bigger scale. These programs aim to improve the livelihoods and wellbeing of local workers, farmers and their families:

  • Women make up more than 60% of the workforce in teafarms. We’re supporting the implementation of women’s safety initiatives in Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya in partnership with governments, women’s rights organizations, NGOs and other partners, guided by the UN Women’s Global Women’s Safety Framework in Rural Spaces.

  • Through a joint initiative with the Initiative for Sustainable Landscapes (ISLA) we’re working to restore and conserve 60,000 hectares of the South West Mau Forest by 2030 through holistic landscape management.

  • We’ve introduced sustainable practices to smallholder factories we work with in Sri Lanka, including training sessions for estate managers, and engaging tea regulatory bodies on issues like plastic recycling at teastates. We’re also finding ways to create more jobs – and increase income opportunities – for smallholder farmers, and to invest in new factories and local infrastructure on Tanzania’s Mufindi tea estates.
