THE ARTISAN : JUSTEA
Artisans and farmworkers working with JusTea grow 100 percent natural, fair trade teas and hand-carve olive wood spoons. Founded in 2012, JusTea established Kenya’s first small-scale and farmer-owned Artisanal Tea Factory. Today, JusTea continues to support tea farming villages using fair trade principles and offers unique teas to a global market. The organization provides sustainable employment for more than 200 families, allowing them to send their children to school and earn 20 percent more than the industry average. In addition, JusTea offers work opportunities to women; more than 80 percent of the employees are female artisans. JusTea is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, Rainforest Alliance Certified, and Non GMO Project Verified and works with an Herbal Tea Co-op to create better opportunities for women. We are excited to work with JusTea and share these fair trade products with you.
