Tea and coffee are among the most popular beverages, consumed both in India and around the world. The top two tea producing nations – China and India, collectively produce about 60% of total global tea output. India is the second-largest tea producer and consumer after China and fourth largest tea exporter after Kenya, China, and Sri Lanka.
India, which exports more than two-thirds of its coffee output, grows coffee primarily in its Southern part. Recently, Coffee too has become very popular in India amongst the youth thanks to entry of new Indian & Overseas chains like Barista, Café Coffee Day (CCD), Costa Coffee, Gloria Jeans, and others. With domestic coffee outlets set to increase manifold over the next 3 years, in addition to foray of global players such as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts, the coffee industry is likely to witness healthy growth in future.
WTCE 2013 will serve as the ideal platform not only for showcasing Indian Tea & Coffee brands and technologies but also for International companies to seek market expansion & branding prospects in India. The event will thus serve the twin purpose of acting as a sourcing platform for Indian companies and as marketing avenue for seeking international buyers.
