Since 2002 10 percent of the output of the tea factory is sold to TeaDirect a fair trade organization in the UK. This organization pays 40 sterling cent per kilo on top of the market price, a so called 'fair trade premium'. The premiums are being pumped straight into development projects. In this way fair trade does not only benefit the farmers, but the entire community. The last couple of years more than 100 schools and 21 water projects have been built of the fair trade premium. Also an HIV/AIDS awareness program and a Community Health Fund was set up.
