Unilever vow transparency in tea supply chains

Unilever, parent company of tea brands such as Lipton, Lyons and Pure Leaf, have made a statement promising transparency in their UK and Ireland tea supply chains. The statement highlights a commitment to sustainability and environmental impact.

The company has provided an interactive map that allows customers and other stakeholders to locate areas from which Unilever sources their tea. Through this, the company stress that all tea from the brands listed and sold in the UK and Ireland is from “Rainforest Alliance certified gardens”. Unilever became a member of Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP) in 2017, an organisation focused on creating a “fairer, better and more sustainable tea industry”.
