In Kenya, Mercy now has a house with electricity and running water. We supported tea growers in Mercy’s community to form into coops and certify as Fairtrade. By providing Fintea with a route to market, growers like Mercy have benefited from a more stable income. They’ve been able to improve their homes, adding electricity and running water.
All our own brand tea is Fairtrade, and has been for 10 years.
As well as our own brand tea, we converted all our hot drinks to Fairtrade in 2008.
We’ve also gone beyond Fairtrade to support tens of thousands of tea smallholders, workers and their communities and Kenya and Malawi.
