Babu Organic Teas / International Value Chain

Kenya is ranked as the second largest tea producer in the world after China (Source: KTDA). However, our small holder tea farmers face a lot of red-tape and challenges in directly accessing international markets.
In order to address the small holder tea farmers’ challenges and increase their incomes; BABU Organics developed the ‘Babu Organics Tea’ brand. This is the first branded local Kenya tea to sell directly to global value chains. We distribute this tea directly though our brand initially to the US and eventually to Europe. We also pay our farmers fair market prices for the teas and therefore assure them income security.
