Here in the UK, we’re a devoted nation of tea lovers, drinking around 165 million cups per day. M&S understands just how passionate we all are about the quality, taste and origin of our favourite cuppa, and thus is dedicated to producing delicious blends and helping improve the lives of the farmers who grow it.
M&S was the first major retailer to switch all its tea and coffee to Fairtrade back in 2006 and has continued to strengthen relationships with suppliers across the world, so you can rest assured farmers are paid a fair price for their crop.
M&S is also the first retailer in the world to launch a Kenyan tea that’s packed by the smallholders who grow it. M&S and its Fairtrade tea supplier, Iri-iani, have been working on the project since 2010 with the aim of adding value to the Kenyan tea crop. By providing funds, education and expert advice, M&S has helped the Kenyan farmers acquire the skills and technical knowledge to not only grow, but also package their tea. The aim is to enable the farmers to become self-sufficient and build their future business. Pure Origin Mount Kenya Teabags are in store now £1.79 for 50 teabags.
