About Pukka Herbs

Pukka Herbs provide organic herbal teas, lattes and supplements for those wanting or needing to naturally support their wellbeing with the support of practitioner-grade plants.

Pukka started life in the year 2001 as a simple idea: to connect people with the incredible wonders of herbs. In Hindi, pukka means 'real, authentic or genuine', which embodied everything that they stand for.

Towards the end of 2017 their vision of 'bringing the incredible power of organic herbs to millions more people beyond our lifetimes' needed partnership and investment. That partner on their incredible organic journey turned out to be Unilever.

Working alongside Unilever gives them new levels of reach and influence, and Pukka provides plenty of influence on them, too; they are challenging their new partner just as they have always challenged each other. Unilever are leading the way in which big business creates a more caring and sustainable world, as outlined in their impressive sustainable living plan.

Pukka make a point to not just look out for the health and wellbeing of their customers, but that of their employees too, with a wellbeing and development fund worth £550 a year to each employee.
