Specifically, it was aimed at determining reasons for slow growth in domestic tea consumption and factory door-sales in particular, recent developments in the domestic market, strategies in place to increase the door sales and domestic consumption in general and if budgeting for promotion and marketing were in the agenda of the factories. It was also aimed at coming up with possible recommendations for improving the domestic tea consumption. The study, whose findings are expected to be used by the stakeholders and policy makers in the tea industry, in helping them make well informed and strategic decisions, was conducted among the Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA) factories as well as the Multinational and locally-owned tea factories in the Nandi region.
