About Us

Who We Are?

The Small Tea Growers’ Sustainability Platform (STGSP) is a public-private-civil society impact coalition that aspires to close the living income gap in the small tea growers’ sector.

STGSP brings together stakeholders in the industry – the government, civil society organizations, private sector, non-government organizations, small tea growers, and local communities – to work jointly towards supporting a decent standard of living for the Small Tea Growers. The program has been launched by IDH The Sustainable Trade Initiative in 2020, to provide a platform to the tea industry stakeholders to collectively make a positive impact on tea value chains.

What We Do?

The platform will adopt different approaches, including a market-driven approach to work with the STGs to increase their farm productivity, income diversification and enhancement; and thereby close their living income gap by 20 percent.
