Corporate Social Responsibility - Sourced with Care

Improving the quality of life in communities where we source our products.

Twinings Social Impact Report 2016

Sourced with Care is at the heart of what we do at Twinings and informs every level of decision-making within the company.

All around the world people grow, make and process things on which our business depends. This gives us the opportunity and responsibility to act as a “force for good” and, in some small but meaningful ways, change lives for the better.

Our Vision

Everyone has the right to a decent quality of life and be able to provide for themselves and their families. Twinings already aims to buy from the best estates, both in terms of quality and ethics, but even these can be improved further, which is what we aim to do.

Our Sourced with Care programme is designed to help support the changes needed to make this a reality in the places around the world where we source our goods and ingredients.

We work to improve living standards,  enhance livelihoods and enable life opportunities for communities in our supply chain.

Twinings have been in the tea business for over 300 years and we have always been innovators. Our Sourced with Care programme is no different; we are dedicated to applying our experience to ensuring quality of life for all those from whom we source our goods and ingredients.

Together with our partners, our Sourced with Care programme has already impacted over 100,000 lives.  We will continue on our journey to drive further change in the future.

How We Work

At Twinings we have a combined approach of ensuring there are strong foundations in place whilst also driving more systemic change in the industry
