Act Responsibly – Sustainability at Wollenhaupt

You know our credo: "Enjoy with Confidence”. Over the past 130 years, we have learned and experienced a lot, and have always remained strong and stable during all the changes - and we have consistently lived, operated and acted according to our principles: respect and reliability. At Wollenhaupt, respect for nature and her gifts are just as important as respect for the people who work in the tea gardens and plantations. Respect for the people who sell, purchase and enjoy our products. Respect for the needs of everyone directly and indirectly associated with our teas, ingredients and accessories. 

How do we express our respect? Well, first and foremost in our reliability, because trust is not possible without consistently reliable work, business operations and actions. Reliability is a foundation of our traditions. For us, a family-run company now in the 4th generation, sustainable business is a matter of course.

What does that exactly mean and what does it specifically mean for you - our customers, partners and employees? For a start: We are responsible for our actions. Each of us, every single day.

In the following, we are pleased to present and describe the fields of action we use as a basis for guiding and managing our sustainable activities and operations.
