Idulgashinna Organic Bio Tea Estate – In 1987 this became the first certified organic tea garden in the world, and Tradewinds was proud to begin importing this unique tea, and provided additional support to the Idulgashinna social development project when it began in 1992.
The social development program at Idulgashinna continues to involve workers in all aspects of the management of the estate. This is raising the standard of living and improving education and health care. It is a radical departure from conditions on most tea estates, where there is a big gap between the management and workers, and where workers live in very basic conditions with poor access to education and health care.
