Nerada Tea continues to work in harmony with our environment, our people and our consumers & focuses on a better future for all.
We proudly support and source the majority of our ingredients which meet aligned initiatives such as the Rainforest Alliance. The Rainforest Alliance seal means that farmers follow more sustainable farming practices that protect forests, improve their livelihoods, promote human rights of farm workers, and help them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis. To learn more about the Rainforest Alliance, visit www.rainforest-alliance.org.
Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO)
We are proud signatories to the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) and take pride in meeting and exceeding their initiatives. APCO envisions a collaborative packaging value chain to keep packaging materials out of landfill and retain the maximum value of the materials, energy and labour within the local economy. Our packaging decisions support our quest for a better tomorrow with our loose-leaf black tea packed in recycled-cardboard and our range of all other products use 95% recycled material. Importantly, these packets are 100% recyclable.
We have recently transitioned to 100% compostable tea bag paper on all our products (except our bulk food-service lines being 1000 pack tagged tea bags & 500 pack tagged envelope range which will be transitioned shortly). Nerada Tea works with local producers & suppliers whenever possible to minimise our carbon footprint and support local businesses. National and international initiatives such as Plastic Free July, help continue to highlight our environmentally friendly practices, including reducing single-use plastics from our workplace.
