Product Excellence

Excellence as an overall seal of quality

Our responsibility does not end with the blending of our fine teas; it also includes the way how our products are presented and served.

As it is the case with the purchase of our raw material, we exclusively work with reliable partners and use only high-quality packaging materials.

Our packaging is both innovative and appealing in terms of its look and feel.

Thus the perfect preparation of our teas is guaranteed and a unique and pleasurable experience is ensured thanks to easy handling.

“We produce our black tea in several steps using orthodox methods. First the tea is carefully harvested by hand in a continuously monitored process and according to the global principle – two leaves and one bud. The fresh green leaves enter the five-step process of orthodox tea production immediately after harvesting. “

Ronnefeldt Sustainability Report

Naturally guided by passion and responsibility

Tea is grown throughout the world. Unfortunately, the environmental standards in many of these countries are often low. For Ronnefeldt, organic production is particularly relevant, since the raw material tea as a primary product is affected by climate change and environmental pollution.

This has an impact on the foundation on which our business is built.

This is why it is important to us to procure many different varieties in organic quality and to minimise our use of resources and packaging materials.

To ensure environmental protection in the growing regions we subject our suppliers to mandatory requirements regarding compliance with the statutory provisions on plant protection products and pollutants.

Ethics

Ethical tea partnership

Since 2013 we have been a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP), a non-profit organisation that works in specific tea growing countries to promote socially and environmentally sustainable business practices.

ETP audits tea producers and small farmers on a regular basis and helps them locally to meet internationally recognised standards.

ETP’s work improves the progress that is being made towards attaining the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in tea-growing regions.

As well as supporting communities on the ground with our programmes across Africa and Asia, ETP also leads the sustainability agenda through piloting business innovations and influencing policy.

“Ronnefeldt supports these efforts by purchasing its raw materials preferably from ETP certified tea gardens.”

Our Partnership

Childaid network

Childaid Network is committed to the education of needy children and youth to eradicate poverty and to give them a better future.

The foundation’s work is focused primarily on the Assam tea region in north-eastern India, but it also has projects in Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

Childaid Network supports families in planting their own small tea gardens so that they can secure their own livelihood.

Around 1,000 families have already planted their own micro gardens and have organised themselves into cooperatives to sell the tea.

We plan to work even closer with Childaid Network in the future.

“Many things need to happen if we want to give children a chance at a better future: Fundamental improvements are necessary at nearly all public schools. Organisations like Childaid Network cannot reach this goal alone. This is why Ronnefeldt has partnered with Childaid Network to support its efforts, initiatives and projects.”
