PRODUCTION & SALES
Members have small tea plots of 0.3 hectares on average. They produce around 10 million kilos of green leaf a year which Lujeri Tea Estate processes into around 2.1 million kilos of black tea. SAT negotiates a green leaf price with Lujeri and receives a second or bonus payment calculated on the price achieved at auction or by direct sales. Changing weather patterns and an increase in pests and disease are reducing yields by 15% on average and correspondingly affecting farmers’ incomes.
