Investing In Indian tea
A new billion dollar fund has been set up in India to boost the quality and productivity of the Indian tea industry. Long plagued by high operating costs and ageing tea bushes planted during the colonial era, it’s about time we did something to make our tea more competitive on the global market.
From replanting initiatives to new equipment and satellite imagery (at Tocklai), it’s all vital to ensuring a better future for Indian tea.
Now we just have to wait and see if the projections of a 30-50% increase in productivity are realized.
