Raw Goods believes good health is the right of all people. We recognise the critical importance of having access to expert medical advice and assistance. To facilitate the health and well-being of Ahinsa tea estate workers, Raw Goods subsidises access to medical practitioners and medical supplies. In addition to these measures, Ahinsa provides suitable housing, clean water and food grown on the estate.
Raw Goods makes financial contributions to tea growers in the form of premiums for high leaf quality. Through this approach, farmers supplying fresh green leaf are directly rewarded for their efforts, and Raw Goods can ensure the continued commercial viability of Ahinsa by increasing trade and fetching higher sale prices at market. Raw Goods also created a green leaf tea quality competition, offering monetary prizes to growers who produce the highest quality leaf.
