Session Title: Impact and Innovation From Farm to Cup

In this panel, Ahmed Rahim and Brian Durkee, Co-Founder-CEO and COO of Numi Organic Tea, dive into the value of creating a business that drives positive global environmental and social impact through meaningful, authentic supply chain relationships. With CSR at the crux of everything Numi does, Rahim and Durkee describe how thoughtful, intentional leadership has led to Numi Organic Tea’s growth and brand differentiation. Beginning with product innovation, this panel will dive into how they fostered meaningful relationships with their supply chain partners from around the world, the process of establishing new social and environmental production standards with supply chain partners, and the positive impact that this has made on farmer lives, product innovation, and ultimately brand growth.
