Uganda Tea Association

Uganda Tea Association (UTA) is the umbrella body of 95% of tea farmers and processors both small and big in Uganda.  UTA was formed in 1948 as a voluntary Association of Tea Producers to meet and discuss common problems affecting the tea industry and find solutions.  The Association continued to be active throughout the period of Uganda’s history; except for the period from1973 till 1983 when it remained dormant.


Tea Association of Malawi

Founded in 1934, the Tea Association of Malawi Limited (TAML) is one of the oldest organisations in Malawi. TAML was established with the aim of representing the entire tea industry both nationally and internationally on matters of interest to tea growers and producers. The association dates back to before Malawi received its independence in 1964. Before that date the Nyasaland Tea Research Association body founded with research as its main objective, had been in existence for about five years.


Tea Association of Tanzania

The Tea Association of Tanzania was formed out of The Tanganyika Tea Growers Association (TTGA) which was established in 1940s by large scale tea producers to promote the common interests of the plantation sub-sector members in the cultivation and manufacture of tea, and to promote good industrial relations and sound wage policies for their workers.


Rwanda Tea Authority

Tea growing was introduced in Rwanda as an industrial crop and purely for export purposes to generate foreign income as early as 1960. Black tea manufacturing followed in 1965 at Mulindi tea factory in the Northern Province. Since then the tea sector has become the most important source export earning after the coffee market plunged in recent years. Tea is now number one export earner ; contributing up to 34% of the total national exports.
