Transparency in any supply chain builds a strong relationship between producers and end-users and it’s even more important in tea industry. It ensures that producers/ tea planters are paid fairly and motivates them to invest further. It also helps maintaining trust between the producers and the end-users. Therefore, steps need to be taken to eradicate the ‘unwanted stoppages’ in the tea supply chain so that the wellbeing of the producers is improved and our environment is protected. Ensuring the availability of information is the key here. A supply chain database needs to be in place which lists precise information about farmers that produce specific varieties of tea, locations of their factories and stores of raw materials etc. Such a step will do a world of good in reducing the dependency on numerous ‘middle-men’ in the tea supply chain and will give the producers their well-deserved due. It is an established fact that female growers and workers in the tea supply chain play a critical role. Yet, they do not receive much income and they lack legal ownership of the farms. Such women can be brought under a co-operative system and having a transparent supply chain only can make it possible.
