Grower, processor, and seller of tea for local and export markets.
WTC procures around 85% of green leaf tea from 12,000 members of a smallholder outgrowers association. The SDU team is focusing on improving smallholder farmers' tea yields and quality by providing extension services, field officers and over 90 demonstration plots, all of which serve to promote better and more efficient farming practices, including mechanised harvesting technology. Other initiatives include working with local banks to secure credit for yield-critical inputs such as fertilisers and pesticides.
