During  the  review  period,  the  hot  drinks  market  grew  in  both  volume  and  value  terms.  Tea
dominated the market  in both the retail and foodservice channels. Tea  is a part of daily  life, and
rural areas generate the most sales. Rural areas drove sales growth because they consist 66% of
the country's population. Consequently, companies have to focus on rural areas to maintain their
market  shares.  Throughout  the  review  period,  sales  of  loose  black  standard  tea  were  very
dynamic as consumers in rural areas always buy loose black standard tea. Introducing affordable
brand in such areas would attract sales. On the other side, in urban areas, offices prefer to use tea
bags. Such a market could also be explored with low cost and high product quality.
In rural areas and small towns new brands of tea are relatively easy to introduce. The tea sachet
packets have  seen high sales growth  throughout  the country and especially  in  rural areas. This
pre-feasibility report focuses Quetta for such a business but opportunity exists in other provinces
for similar business - targeting markets in the rural areas and in small towns.

Developing countries  in South Asia and East Africa account  for more than 85 percent of world
tea  production  and  exports.  India  and  SriLanka  are  dominant  in  both.    Developed  countries
account for about 62 percent of world tea imports.
