We’re pleased to announce that Edinburgh-based tea company PekoeTea has joined the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP). The company was established by Lynn and Jon Cooper in 2006 and now has two shops.
PekoeTea prides itself on trading ethically and focuses on working with smaller companies and tea estates from all over the world. Boasting one of the best ranges of high-grade loose tea in Scotland PekoeTea supply to retail and wholesale customers alike.
“It’s great that a company which is taking loose leaf artisan teas to a new generation sees the merit of joining ETP. On a weekly basis we seem to be getting more interest from tea companies wishing to trade ethically and responsibly. With each new acquisition we can make more of a difference to the lives of people who grow and produce our tea.” Sarah Roberts, Executive Director, ETP.
“It has always been important for us to join ETP because we feel very strongly about transparency in the tea supply chain. One of the most common questions we’re asked is ‘where does your tea come from?’ and by taking the steps necessary to join ETP we can be more confident that we are sourcing tea produced and traded ethically. It’s also good for business because our customers can be assured as to where their tea is coming from. For me, ensuring we truly source our tea responsibly and ethically has always been one of my personal objectives.” Jon Cooper, Managing Director, PekoeTea
