Additional measures taken by Metropolitan Tea

Beyond obtaining the food safety certifications above, Metropolitan Tea Co. undertakes many other self-imposed safety checks.


Unaddressed issues specific to the tea industry
In many cases, our deep knowledge of the tea industry gives us specific insight into particular hazards that may still be out of the scope of some government agencies.

Enhanced food safety standards
In many cases, our safety standards exceed that of some regional governments. Ie. in the case of agricultural input residue. Metropolitan follows European agricultural standards at a minimum - known to be some of the highest in the world.

Steps taken:
  • Auditing by the University of Guelph’s Food Technology Centre (Canada)
  • Annual inspection of tea estates by company personnel
  • Annual visits to supplier factories and packing facilities
  • Annual visits to port facilities

Safe tea tastes better
