"We are pleased to recognize Teatulia for their outstanding contribution in fueling the economic fire of Colorado," says David Tolson, Colorado Companies to Watch Board Chairman.
Over 1600 small and mid-sized business were nominated for the award. After a two-part judging process, a select group of 50 Colorado companies were announced as winning the prestigious award. The companies range from oil and gas and engineering companies to producers of natural/specialty foods.
Teatulia Organic Teas are sourced directly from their own garden in Northern Bangladesh and other like-minded gardens, with no long-term warehouse storage and no waiting around to be put into the right blend by a third party. The results are exquisite, clean and smooth teas that support education, business and health initiatives and demonstrate a thorough commitment to sustainability. Started in 2000 to give back to the local community, the Teatulia Gardens were established as an enterprise that would give the people a living wage while protecting and strengthening the environment. The KS Foundation was launched to give back to the Bangladeshi community and has created revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programs for the people working in the garden and surrounding areas. All sales of Teatulia Organic Teas contribute to this mission, helping to better the lives of men, women and children in our community while rebuilding the local ecosystem. Teatulia Organic Teas is mindful of how its actions impact worldwide communities and actively supports ethical organizations like the Whole Planet Foundation, Rainforest Alliance, and B Corporation.
