Value Chain Investment projects that support the development of tea and coffee communities we source from
Investing in community projects
We’re committed to supporting the communities that grow our tea and coffee and we’re lucky enough to partner with suppliers and farmers who are working hard to help the communities they’re based in to thrive. We invest in initiatives that are designed to drive positive change and we work closely with our suppliers to make sure that they make a real difference in the long term.
Where are we now

Some of our projects
Access to clean water
The projects we work on span from gender empowerment projects to support women in the communities we source from and help educate them to better diversify their opportunities and income. Access to safe and clean drinking water has been a key focus for over a decade, along with nutrition in schools and education, including training programmes for the farmers and their families.
