Facts

Certification

On the packaging of Tea of Life, you will find the Fair Grounds Foundation certification mark. Since the Fair Grounds Foundation has been active in India since 2021, a new logo has been introduced. Unlike the previous logo, where the contours of Sri Lanka were visible, the new logo is not geographically bound. It is a cheerful logo that refers to the elements contributing to that delightful cup of tea: the sun, the earth, the tea plant, and water.

In the name of the Foundation, the words ‘Fair’ and ‘Grounds’ are included. This stands for fair trade, fair products, being good for the earth, and fair motivation.

Board

The board of the Foundation is formed by Pim J. Oostrom (chairman), Jeanine Robbe (vice-president), and Margriet Oostrom (secretary). The board works voluntarily for the Foundation. In addition, four employees from Axxent are actively involved in the decision-making and implementation of the projects.

 

Funds

In addition to donations, funds are created by reserving a fixed amount of €0.25 per kilogram on sales of Tea of Life produced in Sri Lanka. The tea brands Art of Tea and Urban Tea Garden have also committed to the foundation and donate €0.50 per kilogram of tea sold. The brands Art of Tea and Urban Tea Garden also contribute a nice amount of €0.50 per kilo. Additionally, Frellsen contributes €0.30 per kilo.

ANBI

The Foundation was established in November 2009, is a public benefit organization (ANBI charitable institution), and is registered with the Chamber of Commerce under number 30273952 RSIN 8215 06 316.
