We are a small group of tea planters from south India, holding a consolidated area of 20 acres. The present tea leaf prices are so low compare to the cost of production that we suffer a loss of Rs.3 per every kg produced. Since fresh tea leaves are perishable commodity, we often end up selling it at a price which is purely controlled by facorty and agent regime. Its been such a long time since the founders of this business have made a system best suited to their then interest, the government couldn't challenge or make radical changes to facilitate all those who are part of the entire chain. We are now looking at ways by which we can process tea within our estate by using cost effective techniques.
We welcome your valuable inputs, ideas, participation and recommendations in this mission.
