High up in the hills of West Java, PT Harendong Green Farm is expanding due to increased interest and growing demand for its premium organic tea. The farm is planning new plots and plantings to allow a 50 percent increase in production of its green, black and oolong teas.
The company also runs empowerment programs that train local farmers to cultivate their land organically. With more workers preferring to work in the city, Harendong’s aim is to inspire villagers living close to their farm to connect with nature and understand the value of organic cultivation. They hope to build a close-knit community where people feel supported and appreciated and where everyone takes responsibility for the environment and the well-being of the next generation.
Harendong also runs a CSR program which was officially formed under Indonesian regulations and has a designated staff responsible for running activities and events. The tea company has provided the land and equipment for a new wellness center, which includes a prayer center and a sports center for badminton and soccer. The tea company supports social events and tournaments for both sports.
