Forecasts:

There is about 16420 hectares area under tea, majority of the plantation is done by small holders. Present Tea plantation is in small holders dominations. Future target is set to extend plantation to 40 thousand hectares with expected harvest of 46 million kg of Tea which could be a worth of 247 million dollars. This will generate employement for 102 thousand people in rural areas which will boost up the rural economy opening up new development oppertunity.

Following table is an expected growth of Tea plantation.

Scenario of Nepal after 10 years

SN Type of Tea Area in Hectares Total Production in Million Kg. Domestic Consumption in million kg. Export in million Kg. Value of Export in million Value of domestic consumption in million Total Value in million
1 Orthodox 30133 30.13 3.01 27.11 197.95$ 13.20$ 211.15$
2 C.T.C. 10652 15.98 9.40 6.57 14.40$ 20.59$ 34.99$
  Total 40785 46.11 12.41 33.68 212.35$ 33.79$ 246.14$

This way our strategy is with the ambition to the economic development through the development of Tea industry we expect, Nepal can stay in the front line in the world in orthodox tea production in the world market.

Coffee

Currently coffee production is 270 Mt dry Parchment for the year 2007. It is expected that the production will be 1000 tons in the next 10 years.
