Abstract

Workers picking tea for Unilever in India and Kenya are subject to precarious working conditions and labor rights violations, even though this tea carries the Rainforest Alliance certificate. This is an important finding from the report Certified Unilever Tea, Small Cup, Big Difference? that SOMO and the India Committee of the Netherlands (ICN) have released.
