Herbal tea sourcing with respect (with UEBT The Union for Ethical BioTrade) 

February 18th – 16:00 CEST – 17:00 CEST/10:00 – 11:00 EST

Sourcing botanicals for herbal teas is a complicated process. Most herbal teas are a blend of different ingredients, typically from small-scale producers, including as many as 300 different ingredients in herbal teas, originating in more than 100 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Challenges to sourcing include threats to biodiversity, overuse of pesticides, minimal quality control, and over-harvesting of wild botanical species. This webinar will discuss some of the challenges in sourcing herbal tea ingredients with respect to social equity and biodiversity, with particular attention to how to improve conditions on small farms. Speakers to be announced.
