"'There was a roadmap when we started off in 2004-05, when we felt that this (plantation) was the strength of the company although there were other opportunities. Then we strengthened our position by acquiring tea plantations within India starting with Williamson Tea and DoomDooma (from Unilever). But then cost of acquisitions were getting steep in India and so we shifted overseas where we bought plantations in Vietnam, Uganda and Rwanda. Then, tea estates all over the world became expensive. So, the question arose: how do you now grow as a tea company? We then focused on outgrowers model by starting to add capacity by taking ownership of small growers. This is the current strategy where we would keep on adding more and more outgrowers within our fold.""

We had taken precautionary measures,” the SP said."
