National Tea and Coffee Development Board (NTCDB) is commodity board established on 1993/06/02, under the aegis of Ministry of Agricultural Development, by Tea and Coffee Development Board Act 1992 of Nepal. The broad objective of this board is to promote and strengthen Tea and Coffee sector through policy formulation, technical and managerial support.
NTCDB has been working for the betterment and enhancement of Tea and Coffee sectors since its establishment in 1993. Both the sectors have seen remarkable increase in figures of plantation and production in recent decades. In 1996, plantation under tea was merely 3,500 ha and coffee plantation was also less than 260 ha. The figure has reached to 19,036 ha and 1,750 ha for tea and coffee respectively in less than two decades. Similarly, trade of Tea and Coffee is also showing good trend. We have taken a giant leap from being a tea importing country to that of net-exporting in these two decades. Our Tea and Coffee industry is growing larger and larger every year.
With an aim of creating a hub for our growing Tea and Coffee sectors, NTCDB had re-designed its website to include the directorates of all the producers, processors, packagers, traders and so on. Similarly, it'll include all the historical facts, figures, statistics, acts, policies, news and every other things pertaining to Tea and Coffee industries of Nepal. I hope the website will be proved to be an encyclopedia of Nepal Tea and Coffee industrie
