Numi Organic Tea
Artisan Organization: Numi Organic Tea
Country: North Africa
Ahmed and Reem, the sibling founders of Numi Tea, have traveled the world in search of exotic, authentic, and organic herbs and teas. Fair trade purchases and the building of schools, hospitals, and daycare centers ensure their commitment to investing in farmers and engaging in meaningful cultural exchange.
The community of workers at Numi gardens democratically vote to determine how Fair Trade premiums are used in their community. Fair Trade funds have been used for a range of programs including new roads, cooking stoves, mosquito nets, new schools, college scholarships, enhanced maternity benefits, onsite medical staff, and life insurance.
