This was because consumers were attracted to the health and sustainability credentials of these products, such as being cultivated without the use of pesticides. Australian consumers move away from more traditional teas The tea culture in Australia remained in decline inreflected in continued decreases in per capita consumption over the review period.
Why we want to lead the way to a sustainable tea industry Our brands include some of the biggest and most innovative names in tea. In we acquired two new tea brands. Its health and wellness philosophy centres on benefiting people, plants and planet, so Pukka has a clear strategic fit with our business.
Both represent good opportunities to expand our business in the fast-growing speciality tea market. Because investing in sustainable tea is essential for our future success. We want to ensure that we will continue to have a supply of quality tea from expert tea farmers to underpin our growth.
But tea is also essential to our ambitions to make a positive impact through our business. Our brands connect us to millions of people whose livelihoods depend on tea production, and to the ecosystems they share — includingsmallholdings, mostly in Africa and Asia, as well as our own estates in Kenya and Tanzania.
Such a wide-ranging supply chain brings its own challenges — but it also gives us the opportunity to make a real difference to communities and to the environment.
Cross-cutting programmes that aim to change lives Inwe were working on around 40 major programmes in our tea supply chain. One of the most important ways to drive change in any agricultural sector is through certification.
Inwe assisted the Rainforest Alliance in the development of local indicators for sustainable tea production in Kenya in accordance with the Sustainable Agriculture Network certification standard and began to certify our tea farms, in the process helping to transform both our own supply chain and the wider industry.
Inwe became the first major tea company to commit to sustainably sourcing tea on a large scale. In the same year Kericho, our largest tea estate in Kenya, was the first tea farm to achieve Rainforest Alliance certification.
However, certification is not the only way to create change. We recognise the importance of exploring alternative approaches which in some cases are a better fit or go further than existing schemes.
Partnerships for impact Public—private partnerships provide the opportunity to develop sustainable practices and improve the livelihoods of the people working in tea supply chains. We have signed public—private partnerships in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Vietnam, helping us reach nearlyfarmers since Launched init enabled 86, lead farmers — including around 42, women — to train at Farmer Field Schools for guidance on how to share best agricultural practices, increase yields, improve quality and improve their health and nutrition.
As a result, aroundfarmers have met the standards for Rainforest Alliance farm certification. Partnerships also address labour conditions on tea estates in regions such as Assam in India, where more needs to be done to eradicate unacceptable practices.
The strengthening of certification models, particularly regarding labour rights and working conditions, is a key part of the solution.
But too often they have been unable to access the information and support they need to unlock their full potential. However, we have identified cases where farmers have been able to get yields of up to kg through an organised, scientific approach. But these methods are not widely adopted because most farmers use localised, traditional practices due to a lack of access to information.
This is holding back individual farmers and the progress of an entire industry. By using technology to ensure smallholders get advice just when they need it, the partnership aims to help them grow their yields and incomes — while making our supply chain more resilient and sustainable.
With the Federation and a local university, we also aim to set up model farms where farmers from neighbouring areas will be invited to study and learn face to face. In we joined the Ethical Tea Partnership ETPa non-governmental organisation which works with tea companies and retailers to drive improvements in sustainability.
It focuses on improving the lives and livelihoods of tea workers and farmers and the environment in which tea is produced. Through the Malawi Tea programme, we joined the ETP and public and private partners in establishing 50 Farmer Field Schools in Malawi inas well as working to increase tea sector wages, see Fair compensation.Business concept: Purpose of the venture: G.C.
