Tea

Myanmar’s tea industry is slowly rebounding from the reputational damage it suffered when harmful dyes were found to be used in production in 2009. In addition to catering to the large domestic market, the exporters are focusing on organic certification and better processing methods. However, local producers still struggle to compete with Chinese imports in the domestic market, which is price sensitive and does not value quality or certification.

  • Preparing Myanmar’s tea industry by capitalizing on opportunities offered by the ASEAN Economic Community.

  • Building capacity for safety, quality and innovation.
