Through investment from The Co-operative Enterprise Hub, The Co-operative is bringing together over 11,000 Kenyan smallholder tea farmers into co-operatives.
By forming into co-operatives, the farmers will benefit in many ways, including having a stronger voice in trading negotiations and enjoying improved access to markets. They will also be able to build a business they own and share in the profits. And Fairtrade certification will guarantee a minimum price for their tea and make them eligible to supply into The Co-operative's own '99' Fairtrade tea blend.
The Co-operative has put together two mouth-watering Co-operative luxury food and drink hampers packed full of champagne, Fairtrade wine and Truly Irresistible treats and snacks, perfect for your summer family picnic.
March saw the launch of The Co-operative's 'Join the Revolution' campaign which features real people from the initiatives it supports. You can find out more about the campaign by clicking here. The advert features a tea smallholder in Kenya and you can learn more about her story and how we've helped the Kenyan tea smallholders come together to set up their own co-operatives by viewing the film below (and don't forget to check out the T&Cs!).
