It is also becoming easier on the work floor to choose Fairtrade tea. Many large companies and institutions use vending machines for coffee, tea and chocolate milk.

It is also becoming easier on the work floor to choose Fairtrade tea. Many large companies and institutions use vending machines for coffee, tea and chocolate milk. The choice for Fairtrade tea for these specific vending machines has been limited so far. Tea of ​​Life changes this by expanding the range with a Fairtrade and certified organic tea suitable for hot-drink machines.

Earlier, Tea of ​​Life introduced a Fairtrade fresh brew version that is suitable for vending machines. A variant with Fairtrade and organic fresh brew leaf tea is now added. The blend is made from fine leaf tea and is suitable for all hot-drink machines.

Peter d'Angremond, director of the Max Havelaar Foundation: 'Employees of large companies with hot-drink machines can brew a cup of tea at the touch of a button. Loose tea bags often do not belong to the possibilities. We are pleased that Fairtrade and organic tea is now available for freshbrew machines. This way, the larger companies can also make a sustainable choice easier. '


Iyerpadi Estate

The freshbrew tea from Tea of ​​Life comes from the Iyerpadi Estate, a Fairtrade certified tea plantation in India. Iyerpadi Estate receives a development premium of $ 0.50 per kilo for all tea sold under Fairtrade conditions. The employees of Iyerpadi decide democratically on the use of this premium. For example, funds have been set up for pension provisions, medical expenses and death premiums for plantation employees. There has also been considerable investment in corporate clothing for the tea pickers, such as warm clothing, raincoats and gloves. Iyerpadi Estate also pays a lot of attention to the safety and health of the employees. For example, a free health check is offered every year and there is a sports tournament every month for all employees and their families.

Fairtrade tea
Globally, more than 5 million euros worth of Fairtrade development premium is paid annually to Fairtrade certified tea farmers and tea workers. There are 100 Fairtrade certified producer organizations spread over 12 countries. Together they represent more than 360,000 small farmers and workers.

Both within the cooperatives of small farmers and on the plantations, a democratic decision is taken on which the Fair Trade Development Premium is spent. On the tea plantations about half of this premium is spent on a broad support package for workers and their families. Think of facilities in the field of housing, education, healthcare and loans and allowances for workers. The other half of the premium is often invested in community projects such as improving local infrastructure, health care and education.
