Sustainability

Sustainability for real

  • Sustainability has always been central and important to us. From the beginning of 2000, most of our products were produced under ethical and environmentally friendly conditions where many products were certified EU Organic and Faitrade. Tekompaniet was very early in offering double certified products!
  • We have always strived to buy as close to the producer as possible, partly because it benefits those who work in the producer country and partly because it promotes the sustainability focus that we work with.
  • We have a well-developed Code of Conduct and a Supplier Code of Conduct.
  • 2-3 times a year we visit our suppliers in Asia including their plantations and factories. We conduct regular interviews with tea pluckers and factory workers to ensure everyone works in fair conditions.
  • In Sri Lanka and India, we support local development projects. Since 2018, we have funded a project in Sri Lanka aimed at lifting women out of poverty and, through training, teaching them to cook in a business-like way and start their own catering business.
  • The shortest possible delivery route is always in focus. The teas come from a specific plantation and are transported by boat directly from the producer country to our warehouse in southern Sweden.
  • Traceability. All our teas are Single Estate, that is, they come from the same plantation. We can trace it all the way back to the tea plucker.
