SUSTAINABILITY 2017-07-27T17:55:01+00:00

The pristine, sustainable environment where Bitaco® teas are grown and harvested is exceptionally rich in minerals and the tea plants are nourished by pure mountain waters, supporting these exceptional organic teas.

OUR ORGANIC, SUSTAINABLE MOUNTAIN TEA FARMING

We ensure the quality of products within the organic production context of the NOP (USDA) regulations. We further ensure quality with the UTZ certified “Good Inside” label, providing our customers clean, pure, and natural teas with full traceability and supported by social and environmental accountability

WATER AND
BIODIVERSITY

Bitaco® Tea owns 51 hectares of tea plants nestled within the Andean fog forest ecosystem. We are surrounded by the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve, where our tea garden coexists with a biological corridor that allows the conservation of spring waters and a wide diversity of flora and fauna: 256 bird species, 28 amphibian species, 23 reptile species, and 772 species of plants.

BITACO® FOSTERS RURAL COMMUNITY

Bitaco® Tea created the Agricola Himalaya Foundation to develop and improve programs focusing on education, especially for children. Activities focus on the improvement of infrastructure, recreational opportunities, local culture, and access to technology.
