Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation Ltd.
BBTCL has actively promoted the Fair Trade movement since the early 90’s with the purpose of assisting the workers in building community programs and helping them initiating sustainable self-driven projects.
Premium funds and fair wages give tea estate workers agency over their lives and their community, and the ability to achieve sustainable growth. Some of the initiatives undertaken by BBTCL have focused on education, health and microfinance programs, aimed at building better social, economic and environmental conditions for both the workers and the local communities.
Fairtrade Premium projects include:
- Education scholarships.
- A retirement fund.
- A computer center.
- A new dispensary and free medical treatment for the local communities.
