Achievements to Date 

In September 2012, Tetley -- the world’s second largest tea brand -- reached 50% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ tea across all its products, representing nearly 20,000 metric tonnes (20 million kilograms) of sustainably grown tea per year. The first Tetley teas with the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal appeared in the United Kingdom in 2010, and quickly expanded to Canada and other countries. Tetley’s "Farmers First Hand" initiative, launched in 2011, provides consumers direct contact online with the people who grow Rainforest Alliance Certified tea. (Source: Tata Global Beverages)
