Zero tolerance child labor policy

Child labour is a fact in many of the world’s developing countries. Metropolitan tea takes strict care to ensure our teas come from estates and companies that do not employ children at any stage of the tea production process. We feel very strongly about this and wish other tea companies took the same view.

Annual visits
Yearly visits to estates and tea factories help us evaluate our supplier’s business practices. Any supplier found in violation of our policy will be dropped from our list of approved suppliers, immediately.

Children and the tea estates
Tea estates are essentially small villages where workers and their families may live for many generations. In most cases, our approved tea estates provide a high standard of living and education for the children of all workers living on the estates.

Social responsibility and good business go hand in hand. Always ask questions and know what you’re selling. Please call or contact us here.
