Without supply chain transparency, workers don’t know where the tea they pick goes and remediation for abuses from forced labour to gender-based violence stop at the estate instead of going up the chain to where most of the value lies.
The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre addressed this gap by approaching 65 companies with a request for them to disclose the estates and bought-leaf factories that they source their tea from, to be held centrally in the first Tea Transparency Tracker - hosted by WikiRate. We now have 3100+ estates and factories linked to 20 companies on the Tracker.
A map of the tea supply chain and further information about the project can be found on the BHRRC's website
