Week 22 2020

Tea market report 25 – 29 May 2020

This week in Mombasa history was made with the first E-Auction taking place for the Secondary auction. While there were some delays and technical glitches, 50% was sold on this platform. In general, there was a total of 191,405 packages which went under hammer, 6K more packages than last week. There was reduced general demand and outlots were up 22% as compared to last. The Main auction met good demand with the exception of KTDA PF1s which had many outlots mainly due to a lack of interest of Pakistan packers.
