In traditional tea growing areas of the world like India, Sri Lanka & Kenya,
The field workers or “Pluckers” as they are known, make
less than three US dollars per day. Yes, you read that correctly.
Less than $3.00 per day. At Avocado Leaf Tea, we pay our workers
above the minimum wage in California, which is currently $14.00 per hour.
Our workers will make minimum of $120.00 for an 8 hour day. This comes
with breaks and a proper lunch hour. We also follow GAP. Which
stands for “Good Agricultural Practices”. Good Pay and Safe working
conditions are very important to our company. The faces you see
on this post are the happy workers that picked the avocado leaves that
are in every delicious cup of Avocado Leaf Tea. We feel good that we can
make a great product with workers that are safe, happy and well paid.
