QTrade's founder was the agricultural advisor to the first organic tea garden in the world, started in the mid-1980s in Sri Lanka. Ever since then, the organic philosophy has been central to his business vision. QTrade understands the needs of the organic certification at the garden level. The company has been supplying organic tea to the US since the early 1990s, and imports from every origin that can supply it in commercial quantities. This deep understanding extends to the gardens and plantations that supply the other organic botanicals that QTrade specializes in: the herbs, fruits, spices, and flavors.
