The Redbush Tea Company has won Business in the Community’s International Award for a Small Business for its partnership with the Kalahari People Fund. Mosaic Board member, Shabir Randeree, is a Director of Redbush.
Redbush is a small business with three employees dedicated to the sale of exclusive rooibos (red bush) tea to leading supermarkets in the United Kingdom. The Redbush Tea Company donate a percentage of their profits to support education and water projects for the indigenous people of Kalahari in Bostwana and Namibia, whose ancestors were the first to use rooibos as a herbal medicine.
Lord Hastings of Scarisbrick, International Director, Corporate Citizenship, KPMG said: “The judges were struck by the energy and passion of this small company. They have taken on a marginal community, working in partnership to make a real difference. Much larger companies can learn from the way Red Bush has integrated such a compelling cause into their brand.”
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive of Business in the Community, said: “I am delighted that the Redbush Tea Company’s amazing work has been recognised in this way. My congratulations to all involved.”
