Ringtons' response to allegations of sexual abuse on Kenyan tea plantations

We were saddened by recent reports of human rights abuses on tea estates in Kenya.

We can confirm that despite James Finlay Kenya being listed in our 2021 supply chain disclosure, we have not purchased tea from James Finlay Kenya since 2017 and do not maintain a relationship with them. We have therefore reviewed our supply base disclosure from 2021 and updated it. Please see 2023 update in the attached excel file. We are also in the process of updating our supply list on our website to reflect the attached excel file.
