Fair for Life: ensuring our herb farmers get a fair deal
30th June 2015
Ben, Pukka’s Sustainable Herbs Manager, has just got back from Northern India where he visited the farmers that grow the organic field mint that goes into all our teas.
25 farmers work together across 60 acres of farmland to grow our Soil Association certified organic field mint.
Many of us here at Pukka have seen first-hand the difference fair trading can make to lives.
That’s why we’re exploring the feasibility of this group of farmers – who are all from one village – becoming Fair for Life certified, ensuring they get a fair deal for the herbs they supply to us and the local community benefits from a fund for social development.
