Malawi Tea 2020 Annual Progress Report (October 2016)
The multi-stakeholder nature of the program demonstrates the commitment of all supply chain actors (producers, tea buying and packing companies, traders and retailers), civil society, government and unions to work together to ensure a profitable future for Malawian tea growers and improved livelihoods for workers and their families. This type of collaboration is a first for the tea industry anywhere in the world.
In the last year, under the overall guidance of the Steering Committee, stakeholders have worked to deliver the activities and KPIs outlined in the Roadmap.
