Tales of the Tea Trade : Forest Tea
Buddikha established his company with the explicit mission to maximize local income-generation, while promoting environmental stewardship in less-developed parts of Sri Lanka. 'Part of our responsibility is to empower the women of the village, small scale tea farmers and local industries of the area. We employ village women and ensure the sustainable skill development and living standard improvement by sharing the profit percentage with them. Some of our packagings are locally produced by villagers providing an extra income source to their families. The company aims to do so by employing and training the local workforce (and neighbouring out-growers) to produce high value-added products and services, using locally available products. The farmers are encouraged to practice reforestation and forest friendly practices to preserve forest and wide biodiversity, while protecting and restoring local forests, water systems and other ecosystem service. The farmers holding hands with us are paid high rates for the tea leaves'
