In 2021, more than 3.1 billion people in the world – or 42 per cent of the global population – were unable to afford a healthy diet. Tea workers and farmers, predominantly women, often contend with high rates of malnutrition due to diets lacking essential nutrients. Healthy Diets for Tea Communities is a public-private collaboration between the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, the Ethical Tea Partnership and eight leading tea companies which aims to promote healthy diets in tea supply chains in India, Malawi, and Kenya. Between 2020 and 2023, the programme reached 734,075 people, increasing the percentage of women in the programme eating minimally diverse, nutritious diets – 5 out of 10 food groups –  in all three countries. The documents below summarise the programme’s impact in Assam, Kenya and Malawi. Click on the buttons to learn more:
