Kerala govt urged to set up modern warehousing, value-added packaging unit

The Association of Planters of Kerala (APK) has asked the Kerala government to set up a modern warehousing and value-added packaging unit, on the lines of the model at Dubai Tea Trading Centre. The proposed unit should enable tea estates in the state to add value by blending, packaging and branding their teas for exports, which would add a premium to the commodity prices. It should also have modern research labs to create new products out of tea as per evolving consumer preferences, according to The Hindu Business Line. APK chairman SB Prabhakar has suggested that the state government should formulate a long-term financial support package for replanting.
