Cau Dat, in Truong Tho Hamlet, Xuan Truong Commune, 30 kilometers from the city’s center of Da Lat, was where the French first brought fragrant tea trees in 1927 and officially established the Cau Dat Service of Tea. Cau Dat has been the cradle of the Lam Dong tea region for 80 years.

Then tea growing areas expanded to districts including Bao Loc, Bao Lam, Di Linh and Da Lat City.

The province has increased its tea area from 250 hectares to 300 hectares every year in the 2004-2010 period.

Currently, Lam Dong Province grows about 24,000 hectares of many tea varieties, with more than 30 local and foreign enterprises growing, purchasing and processing tea products.

So far, 20 businesses have been licensed VietGAP (Vietnamese Agriculture Practices) Certificate for their safe and high quality products.

Entrepreneurs have supported growers to apply high technologies in planting and processing tea. The cooperation will create a stable material source for companies, increase the income of farmers and develop the tea industry of the largest tea garden of Vietnam.

Tea sector moves to attract investment

QĐND – Saturday, October 10, 2009, 22:22 (GMT+7)

The tea sector will hold its first investment and trade promotional conferences in Phu Tho and Hanoi on October 15 and 16, hoping to attract more domestic and foreign investment in the sector, expand the market and increase its exports.

This information was released at a press briefing in Hanoi on October 9. The conferences will also be a forum for domestic and foreign businesses to sign contracts and develop co-operative programmes.

Nguyen Kim Phong, president of the Vietnam Tea Association said that Vietnam now ranks fifth in the world in tea production and exports. The country’s total tea plantation area is currently 131,000ha and is expected to reach 150,000ha by 2010.

However, Vietnam’s tea export price is US$1.3 per kilogram while the world’s average is US$2.31 per kilogram. This is due to the lack of capital, techniques and machinery to invest in production as well as poor promotional activities. There should be a comprehensive investment and trade plan to develop the tea sector to its full potential, he said.
