Les Jardins de Gaïa
As a tea house, Les Jardins de Gaïa in north-eastern France is a pioneer in organic and Fair Trade. Their philosophy is to respect people and nature, while uncompromisingly making the best quality tea. The most amazing teas and flavors are born from the rich soil and diverse nature, through ancient knowledge and tradition. Founded in 1994, Les Jardins de Gaïa has been actively working from the outset to promote organic farming, fair trade and sustainable development around the world. Gaïa enters into long-term contracts with farmers and creates financial stability, e.g. advance payments and price and purchase quantity guarantees, and supports small cooperatives and local projects for the benefit of the environment and people. Fair trade projects have been launched in India, China, Africa and East and South-East Asia.
Les Jardins de Gaïa products deservedly carry a number of prestigious and reliable certificates: ECOCERT / AB (organic), DEMETER (biodynamic farming) and MAX HAVELAAR (Fair Trade). Gaïa currently has more Max Havelaar Fair Trade certified products than any other company in France.
