The smallholder tea farmers provide a significant and increasing percentage of the green tea processed by Lujeri and are an important part of the community. The number of farmers has increased from 1100 in 2001 to 9106 in 2015. These farmers provide over 17% of the crop processed by the four factories. Lujeri sees the smallholder farmers as important stakeholders in its business. The growth of these farmers in numbers, and hectares planted and tea produced continues to be encouraged for the good of Lujeri, the smallholder farmers and the community in general.
