Ethical Tea

HVA Foods PLC is a company born in tradition and we have distinguished ourselves as a source for modern day needs. By integrating traditional manufacturing with unique, green initiatives we have set ourselves apart from our competitors. We design, develop and manufacture products with constant awareness of Environmental concerns. HVA Foods PLC is respectful of the consumer's desire to contribute to the protection of the environment and it is our responsibility to offer products that meet this need. Without the understanding of today's Ecological issues it would be impossible for a company to forecast the market's demands. Also, HVA Foods PLC replaced all of our factory lighting with energy efficient fluorescents equipped with sensors. The factory separates waste such as Paper, Plastic, Organic & Metal and all scrap metals, cardboard and mixed paper are being recycled. Where paper is needed, 100% recycled paper is being used. However, we are striving towards a paperless office. HVA Foods has also been awarded the Fair Trade certification as a result of the many measures it has taken to provide fair trading opportunities throughout the supply chain.

As an HACCP compliant Company,all raw materials are sourced through a preferred supplier list.All teas are purchased through a
legitimate framework as specified and supervised by the Ceylon Tea Traders Association (CTTA) and the Sri Lanka Tea Board (SLTB). As a result the prices paid for tea reflect true value, thereby activating a trickle down effect to the tea grower and estate worker
