What are the benefits of fair trade tea?

In the same way in which millions of us depend on a brew to get us through the day, there are millions of farmers in developing countries whose livelihoods rely on the tea industry.

Farms and tea growers face fluctuating prices when trying to compete with factory-led tea plantations controlled by large companies wishing to keep costs low.

Buying fair trade tea provides a minimum price safety net helping combat an unpredictable market. So far fair trade tea has earned millions of pounds for certified farmers and workers across the world.

Traidcraft sources tea from Tanzania, Africa, working closely with the Kibena tea factory. By purchasing Traidcraft's fair trade tea, available in a variety of blends and sizes, you could be contributing to building classrooms for the Itulahumba Primary School.
