Xuan En Fair Trade Co-Op

Withering room in Ba Hu Shan village, also part of the Xuan En Fair Trade Co-op. Seen here is Rishi's Joshua with Mr. Qu, the Fair Trade Association and Co-op leader and his daughter, Qu Hai Ying. This withering room is part of the Co-op factory supported by fair trade funds. More than 1200 farming families of the Co-op have membership and ownership of this factory. Before, the members were just tea pickers but now, with the factory, they enjoy value addition and greater profits from the manufacturing of their teas.
