Fairtrade is one of the oldest and most widely recognised accreditation of ethics, we are proud to support Fairtrade Foundation, we at Suki Tea believe in the People, The Plant and The Planet which is why we purchase Fairtrade Tea when and where possible.
Behind your brew, real people face low wages, discrimination and the hard choices living in poverty can bring. When you buy Fairtrade tea, farmers and workers can bring greater security, equality and opportunity to the lives of their families and communities as Annie and Zoë experienced when they visited Rwanda earlier this year, they got to see first hand how our Fairtrade tea makes a difference to their every day live.
Through Fairtrade, tea workers can improve their working conditions and learn how to improve the way they farm and manage their environment. They can make sure their children are fed and can go to school. Communities can invest in clean water and clinics, improving everyone’s health. The Fairtrade minimum prices allows tea pluckers on plantations to invest their Fairtrade Premium into community services such as housing, education and healthcare, this is their choice, the money is spent where they feel they need it.
One small change, has one big impact, make sure it’s Fairtrade.
