Until 2008-09, Dhunseri Tea & Industries Ltd. (DTIL) was only engaged in tea production and then it branched out into the other segments. Tea is one of the oldest businesses of the Dhunseri Group and has been the flag bearer for the last five decades.
DTIL has widened its reach from eight estates in 2003-04 to ten estates in 2012-13 in Assam. As a result, the company is now one of the ten largest tea producers in India. The Company’s tea packaging and blending units are located in Dhunseri Tea Estate (Assam) and at Jaipur (Rajasthan). Dhunseri group has through its subsidiary; Dhunseri Petrochem & Tea Pte Ltd. recently acquired two tea estates in Malawi in South Eastern Africa with a production capacity of 94.50 lac kgs of tea. With this acquisition, Dhunseri Petrochem & Tea Ltd. has joined the elite club of tea companies, who have already made their foray in the overseas tea plantation business.
As per Scheme of Arrangement sanctioned by the Hon’ble High Court at Calcutta by an Order dated 7th day of August, 2014 the Tea Division of Dhunseri Petrochem & Tea Limited was demerged with Dhunseri Tea & Industries Limited (FKA Dhunseri Services Limited)
