The Teatulia Cooperative, or Kazi Shahid Foundation (KSF), was started as a dairy cooperative to support Bangladesh’s first and only organic tea garden, Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate Ltd., otherwise known as the Teatulia Tea Garden. Located in the very northern tip of Bangladesh, the garden was founded in 2000 by Kazi Shahid Ahmed, Chairman of the Gemcon Group with the express goal of improving lives in this remote and neglected region through enterprise. Today, KSF provides innovative education, health, and cattle-lending programs that provide a bright future for thousands of Bangladeshi families.
KSF has introduced organic vegetable farming to the people of Bangladesh. KSF provides the resources, financial capital and knowledge necessary for the community to grow organic food. This allows co-op members to not only feed their families but also strengthen their socio-economic condition through earning a profit on their crops. Members are given comprehensive training comprised of organic farming fundamentals, farm design and practical demonstrations. The co-op then helps vegetable farmers establish a direct connection to consumers by cutting out the middleman. Program facilitators collect vegetables directly from co-op members and supply them to the largest market in the Northern Bangladesh region, the Meena Bazar.
