With two strategically located offices in Kenya and Malawi in-line with the policies of off-shore trading, Ranfer offers a reliable bulk tea service for the export market. Each order is carefully matched to the exact standard required by the client and delivery time takes as little as 02 weeks.

Sri Lankan Tea The Ceylon tea industry is over 150 years. When the then popular crop, coffee was struck by 'blight' in 1860, it took a backseat from being a dominant crop. As the coffee crop died, tea cultivation and production followed. Sri Lanka produces a subtle variety of teas. Her 200,000 hectares of tea-carpeted hills makes Sri Lanka one of the world's largest exporter of tea.

From the cool hills-climb of Nuwara Eliya to the full-bodied low-grown teas, nimble pluckers still handpick "two leaves and a bud". The plucked leaves are then collected and sent to a factory. At the factory, the tea leaves are withered on large troughs, then rolled, twisted and broken up to react with air. This results in fermentation and is a key process in the production of black tea.
The fermented leaf is then fired to stall further fermentation
Grading determines the value of the product and is finally weighed and packed.

Kenya / Malawi : Feature of the Group's activities has been its vision to achieve a well researched expansion programme into offshore trading. As a result it maintains two Trading Offices in Kenya and Malawi whose respective achievements have been extremely noteworthy and internationally recognized. In fact, the Group envisages establishing a Trading Office in Indonesia on a similar basis, during the course of this year. These offices at present are styled to source commodity requirements of the Group, and in doing so, it presents its overseas clientele an unique opportunity in meeting its sourcing requirements locally.
