Hubbathalai N Sivan at The World Tea & Coffee Expo

The World Tea & Coffee Expo and Conference was held in Mumbai last week for 3 days(20-22, October). Around 70 Companies have exhibited their produces in the event highlighting mostly Speciality Teas.


Tea Board of India  allotted a stall in its pavillion to the Nilgiris Small Tea Growers to exhibit their products. Hubbathalai N Sivan, [Promoter & Social Entrepreneur,  OOTYFRESH Speciality Nilgiris Teas Project,  Nilgiris Tea Development Foundation(NTDF)], took two progressive small tea growers to the event and displayed their Speciality Handmade Green Teas  alongwith his OOTYFRESH Speciality Nilgiris Tea (premium  White Teas, Green Teas, Orthodox Teas,etc).


Since he was also  invited as a Speaker  he presented a paper on Vision and Mission on Nilgiris Small Tea Growers for Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Developments.

A large number of Badagas still depend on tea for their primary source of income and livelihood . I am in agreement with Siva when he says that there is tremendous future for our Nilgiris Speciality Teas in India and Abroad and it is high time that our community should wakeup and venture into this atleast now for our sustainable livelihood through our tea gardens. – Wg Cdr JP
