The vision of Rwanda Mountain Tea is to be a regional leader in exporting top quality tea to world markets. The tea companies source the green tea leaf from their own plantations and from out growers, and process it into black tea mainly for export markets. So far, the teas from factories under Rwanda Mountain Tea Ltd management attract some of the best prices on Mombasa tea auction market.
The majority of the teas are sold on the Mombasa auction with a few private sales.
Rwanda Mountain Tea Ltd sells 1% of its teas locally in value added through Rwanda Tea Packers, a blending company in which it has majority shares, which blends both CTC black and green tea.
Some companies in the group have obtained Rainforest Alliance Certificates and others have registered for certification either with Rainforest Alliance or with ISO 22000. All the companies hold Pesticides Residue Certificates.
