KTDA seeks to expand into Asian, Russian and US markets

25 August 2014, 12:12 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA) has formed a committee to look for new tea markets in Asia, Russia, China and USA.

KTDA chairman, Peter Kanyago said the move is aimed at expanding Kenyan tea market so as to increase sales and benefit farmers.

Kanyago added that the Agency has imported about 70 000 tonnes of fertilizer which will be distributed to tea farmers later.

Speaking at Ragati Tea Factory in Mathira sub-county, the KTDA chairman said the special compound fertilizer arrived in two shipments and is expected to help in improving the quality and quantity of tea production.

“KTDA will ensure farmers get the right fertilizer with the right weight,” noted Kanyago.

He further noted that KTDA is expecting to receive the subsidized fertilizer that the government promised them, adding that the process is still underway.

The government, through Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Livestock promised to give tea farmers subsidized fertilizer just like their counterparts in maize and coffee sectors.
