At Twinings North America, we are proud to play a part in continuing the 300-year tradition of Twinings tea. This includes a commitment to provide consistently excellent products and the best tea experience for all of our consumers.
We understand that an important aspect of our commitment includes taking care of the environment and the growers around the world who supply our tea. We are proud to be a part of the Ethical Tea Partnership (https://www.ethicalteapartnership.org
) , which works with tea producers and tea companies to improve sustainability of the tea industry. And we took further action to create the Twinings Sourced with Care program (https://www.sourcedwithcare.com
), which seeks to improve quality of life for the people in communities from which we source.
Our commitment also includes an effort to bring our customers high quality products, whether organic or conventional. To that end, we have reached out directly to tea growers regarding their usage of glyphosate in materials supplied to us. We encourage our growers to use the most sustainable and environmentally responsible growing practices during the growing and harvest stages. In general it can be very difficult for our suppliers to ensure that glyphosate is not used with all of the conventional teas and herbal ingredients that are supplied to us.
We are able to assure our customers, however, that our organic line of products is not grown using glyphosate, as it is not permitted at any time in the cultivation of our organically-grown teas and herbals. Our customers who desire to be certain that glyphosate has not been used may wish to choose from our line of certified organic products.
Twinings’ mission is simple: to deliver the most enjoyable tea experience to each of our customers, every time. We continue our commitment to providing you the best possible quality tea and appreciate the confidence that you have shown us for 300 years and counting.
