Sri Lanka-China Cross Country Co-operation
26 August 2015
We helped Indian producers improve in two key areas – healthy and safety and environmental management.
We helped Chinese producers improve human resource management practices by providing them with free training.
We’re tackling harassment and discrimination, and promoting equal rights for women/minority groups at tea processing factories.
In China our factory health and safety training helped make tea processing factories better and safer places to work.
We’re leading a coalition to help create a more competitive Malawian tea industry in which workers earn a living wage and smallholders are thriving.
We developed an occupational health and safety (OHS) training course specifically for the Sri Lankan tea industry.
We train tea workers and farmers to use agrochemicals safely in order to minimise risk to themselves, others, and the environment.
Our monitoring programme helps producers meet international social and environmental standards.
We worked with CARE to improve living and working conditions on tea estates in Sri Lanka.
