Sharing information on our supply base

As a business we recognise the role that transparency can play in helping create more resilient and sustainable supply chains and for this reason we’re committed to sharing information about where we source tea, coffee, herbs and packaging for our Yorkshire Tea and Taylors of Harrogate ranges.

At its heart is the idea that knowledge and sharing information underpins effective action. Being open about where we buy and who we buy from enables collaboration. It can help businesses, civil society and producers work together constructively and positively on problems that can’t be solved alone.

Through Taylors Sourcing Approach (TSA) – our model for how we buy our tea, coffee, herbs and packaging – we’ve laid the foundations to build a more sustainable supply chain. Thanks to TSA we work in partnerships with strategic suppliers via long-term contracts to improve quality and social and environmental standards.

The lists below include all current suppliers for our Yorkshire Tea, Taylors Coffee and Fruit and Herb ranges, though some may supply us with smaller volumes than others or may not currently be part of Taylors Sourcing Approach. This is our first step toward supply chain transparency. We don’t have all the answers and recognise that there’s always more to do. However, we’re committed to building our approach over time.
