Govt asks tea industry to focus on quality issues

The government said that there is a need to monitor the level of minimum residue limit (MRL) of pesticides in tea closely.

The government has asked the tea industry to focus more on quality issues, as per a PTI report.

"The entire world is focusing on the quality of Indian tea. So the Indian tea industry should focus on this aspect," said R R Rashmi, Additional Secretary, Commerce and Industry Ministry, at Tea Research Association's AGM held on 18th September at Kolkata.

Rashmi said that there is a need to monitor the level of minimum residue limit (MRL) of pesticides in tea closely. The minister also stated that the Commerce Ministry along with the Health Ministry is working towards harmonisation of standards both at the domestic and overseas levels. His views came against the backdrop of the recent Greenpeace report which said that Indian tea contained dangerous levels of pesticides which are harmful for human consumption.

"So far, the India tea industry did not give much focus on exports. Large number of players focused on the domestic market. There is a need to re-focus on exports," he added.
