Our gardens have multiple certifications for environment-friendly operations and ethical work processes and contribute towards socio-economic upliftment of human resources.
Sustainability at Every Step
As part of the Camellia Group, we have strong moral beliefs and understand that our employees are key to the success of our businesses. We take responsibility for our communities and environments and pride ourselves in going beyond our statutory duty as an employer.
Located in Siliguri, the Goodricke School for Special Education is equipped with state-of-the art facilities specifically designed for children with special needs.
Our tea gardens employ socially underprivileged tribes from remote corners of the country, providing them with multiple benefits.
We provide well-equipped hospitals and maternity clinics for our garden workers and have subsidised surgeries conducted by overseas doctors.
All new factories contain water harvesting systems to ensure clean drinking water for our workers.
Our Darjeeling garden is committed to organic farming practices, supporting human and animal health. We are undertaking large-scale tree planting in areas that are not under tea plantations, which act as forest zones.
