Small Organic Farmers’ Association (SOFA)

Some of our tea is grown by members of the Small Organic Farmers’ Association (SOFA) with the vision to establish a prosperous community living in harmony with the environment, and today there are over 2,600 members. Unlike the typical monoculture model of tea production, SOFA members sustain the land by growing a variety of foods including pepper, cloves, ginger, turmeric, and vanilla alongside tea. This diversification provides both economic and environmental resilience at the farm level. Bio Foods ( acts as the processor and packer for all SOFA tea, providing market access to small farmers so they can stay on the land, provide strong livelihoods for their families, and maintain healthy and vibrant communities.
