What we do

We promote and advocate the common interests of members in the production and manufacture of high-quality tea and business sustainability as well as secure good industrial relations and sound wage policies for workers. We also support our neighboring communities in the provision of social, environmental, educational and health infrastructure as well as link them to the tea markets for sustainable tea farming.

Specifically:

  • To engage on behalf of our members in the formulation of legislation that affects tea growing and manufacture
  • To promote and coordinate compliance with the law in cultivation and manufacture of tea
  • To promote global competitiveness in tea production through compliance with national and international standards and certification requirements
  • Promote sustainability of tea production and manufacture through adoption and application of appropriate technology and human capital development
  • Collective bargaining with our industrial and labour relations partners
  • To collaborate with other connected Associations in the promotion of employers’ interests
