Coonoor auctions: Tea Prices on two-month high;

With the volume made available for Sale No: 35 of the auctions of Coonoor Tea Trade Association remaining four-month reduced and stories floating of decreased volume remaining catalogued for coming months in perspective of adverse weather pulling down area harvest, upcountry potential buyers and exporters showed desire to establish up probable stocks.

Decreased volume and elevated need pushed up the ordinary price tag to ₹94.ninety three a kg — the greatest of the last two months. However, the increasing price tag prompted hesitancy between the potential buyers to pick up large-priced teas. Exporters were selective and chosen medium-priced teas.

For that reason, the volume marketed dropped to 16.eighty five lakh kg – the cheapest in a month. This pulled down the all round earnings, in spite of the unit price tag increase, to ₹14.87 crore – the cheapest in the last one particular month. It meant that the all round earnings crashed by ₹1.91 crore or eleven.38 per cent in just one particular 7 days.

This is the greatest price tag fetched by this grade ever given that production begun in our manufacturing facility seventy two a long time ago”, Homedale’s Handling husband or wife Raman Menon told BusinessLine.

This was the only tea, CTC or orthodox from bought-leaf or corporate sector, which crossed ₹ 300/kg mark this 7 days.

The Purple Dust grade of Crosshill Estate High quality, auctioned by GTAPL, fetched ₹ 226. Amid other CTC teas, Vigneshwar Estate and Pinewood Estate obtained ₹ 216 each and every and Deepika Supreme ₹ 201. In the orthodox tea auction, Chamraj obtained ₹ 277, Kodanad ₹ 259 and Kairbetta ₹ 226.
