Fairtrade - OLD
All of our sourced teas at SereniTEA are 100% Fairtrade Certified.
The Fairtrade movement ensures decent working conditions for workers in developing countries and invests directly in their communities. Our tea producer’s workforce is given minimum statutory rights, including provisions such as freedom from discrimination, ability to unionise, fair payment structures and maternity benefits for the female workforce. These are but a few of the requirements that form part of the Fairtrade certification standard. Furthermore, a percentage of the price of the tea we buy (called the ‘Fairtrade Premium’) is given directly to the workers fund. They democratically decide in how to invest the money into social, environmental, and educational projects.
Look for the mark on our packaging. FLO ID 22713
