On Thursday, 16th May, 2019, the team from Tea Trade Association of Malaysia (TTAM) paid a courtesy call to the High Commissioner, H.E. Amb. Francis Muhoro led by their Chairman Ir. C.K Liew. From statistics, Malaysia consumes 17,000 tons of tea per year while local tea accounts for only 3-4,000 tons; per capita tea intake is 900 grams per person per year and rising. With the high quality of our Kenyan tea and continued promotion, the market potential is huge.
Kenya is in the top ten countries exporting tea to Malaysia. They discussed about the upcoming Malaysia International Tea & Coffee Expo 2019 organized by TTAM with support of Selangor State Government from 10-13th October 2019 to be held at MITEC in KL where Kenyan tea and coffee traders will be in attendance. It will also be an opportunity to showcase Kenyan tea and coffee and expand our market share.
