Fair Trade & Beyond

Our Fair Trade Certified™️ and Verified Fair Labor™️ products let you vote with your dollars for a more just and equitable world.

Fair Trade Certified™️

Numi is proud to be a leading purchaser of Fair Trade Certified™️ tea. The farmers who grow our tea democratically vote to determine how Fair Trade Premiums are used in their communities. Fair Trade funds have been used for a range of programs including roads, cooking stoves, mosquito nets, new schools, college scholarships, maternity benefits, and onsite medical staff. To date, Numi has contributed more than $1 million in Fair Trade Premiums.

Verified Fair Labor™️

Where Fair Trade isn’t available or additional support is needed, our Verified Fair Labor™️ certification offers a continuous improvement program audited annually by a third party. Growers must be certified organic, ensuring workers are safe from harmful chemicals. The program fosters direct partnerships and encourages brand holders to have a direct role in the social development of their supply chain, ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions.

Founding B Corporation

Numi was one of the first 30 companies to be certified as a B Corporation in 2006. Certified B Corps are purpose-driven companies that create benefit for shareholders, employees, their community, and the environment.
