At Alafia Tea, Coffee and Spice, we adopted from inception the notion of protecting the exclusive health tea plants that we procure from our associated farms and use in our production and those from other farmers that produce them in the rural communities of developing countries. The appreciated efforts of these farmers will enable us to create exquisite tasting teas including chai from loose leaf blends. Our research and development department is continually formulating customer-oriented, functional and healthful products. For these reasons, we want to help to sustain and develop plants especially those with health properties that people have depended on since the beginning of time for food, medicine, shelter, clothing, cosmetics and other beauty products. Also, we are commited to render unfailing support and assistance to the farmers that grow these plants so as to maintain sustainable growth in such communities around the world.
In order to begin the process of reaching these objectives, we will start to work on two of the United Nations’ post Millennium Development Goals which are:
1. Create a global partnership for development
2. Participate in environmental sustainability
