Introducing ‘Infused with Impact‘
Our commitment to crafting exceptional tea while actively benefiting the planet and supporting the communities involved.
Our deep-rooted philosophy is to inspire a love for tea. We unite with those who make our tea, fostering a brighter future.
Amid industry and climate changes, we take positive action, collaborating with local partners to meet community needs and preserve tea quality. Our latest work is captured in our Sustainability Report.
The tea communities make our tea blends. So, we work with local partners to get to the heart of how we can support them. From nutrition and education, to long-term climate resilience, we focus on making a difference that lasts.
Women in Tea is our latest initiative to support and elevate women in the tea industry. It’s a new project aimed at improving the health of women working in tea gardens in Kenya by providing them with the choice to use menstrual cups through Ruby Cup.
From tea bush to blend, we discover how to uphold the quality of our tea while reducing our environmental impact. When it comes to preserving the future of tea, the smallest changes can be the most sustainable. Many initiatives are undertaken in our flagship production facility in Emirates.
Our Ecovadis journey began in 2020, and we’re thrilled to have achieved a gold rating for three consecutive years. This means Ahmad Tea Emirates Factory now proudly stands among the top 3% of manufacturing companies globally.
Ahmad Tea Emirates Factory achieved 1st in Zone as the Environmentally distinguished Industrial Establishment, Ras al Khaimah, UAE.
Through sales of the Beyond the Leaf range by Ahmad Tea partners around the world, we are all contributing funding that will go towards their ground-breaking research, projects that potentially help everyone on Earth. Since the project’s beginning Ahmad Tea and, indirectly our consumers, have contributed more than $180k to Kew Gardens and their research to stop biodiversity loss.
For tea to thrive, we look beyond the gardens to the countries we supply. Introducing noncompetitive ways of working and inviting distributors to share local charity projects with us. With these practices in place, positive impact can flow from crop to cup.
Together with Oxfam, we’ve supplied villages with their first drinking water and systems to manage the irrigation of land.
People surveyed washed their hands after hygiene training, compared to 36% at the start of the project
Households now spend under 30 minutes collecting water, compared to 68% at the start of the project
Target households now have access to safe drinking water – compared to 29% at the start of the project
People in eight villages now have better access to clean water
Market garden producers have improved their food security – compared to 4% at the start of the project
Before the arrival of the Ahmad Tea project, there was really a water problem. There was only one well that fed several villages at once. For some tasks, we often collect and use water from the pond. Thank God with the borehole built by the project, we now have access to drinking water and nearby.
We work exclusively with one distributor in every country. Not only do we share a trusting business relationship, we also share a commitment to positive impact through conscious distribution. Here are some highlights of the projects we have co-funded together with our distributors in their countries.
