Ethical Tea Partnership
Jenier World of Teas source all our teas through member organisations of the Ethical Tea Partnership. The Ethical Tea Partnership has a goal to provide consumers with a totally transparent perspective on where tea is grown and manufactured. All aspects of the quality of lives for those living and working on tea estates is covered including fair compensation health coverage, housing and childcare.
The ETP runs monitoring and improvement programmes to help tea producers improve against the Ethical Tea Partnership Global Standard, and all audits are carried out by independent third-part auditors. Whilst similar to Fair trade, the ETP is totally focussed on tea and is able to address the many individual nuances and regional peculiarities within the tea trade. ETP also differs from Fair Trade in that its primary focus isn't economics, but is also very much led by the social and environmental aspects of the tea trade. This approach is helpful as where higher prices are paid in developing countries it addresses the concern of unscrupulous companies bolstering lost margins further along the supply chain.
