Weight & Packaging Details:
1. Fanning weight is approximately 60kg per sack
2. Leaf weight is approximately 40kg per sack
3. A Full 20 foot container is 10 pallets of 20 sacks = 200 sacks.
A Full 20 foot container weighs:
12,000kg of fanning tea or 8,000kg of leaf tea.
A 40 foot container is double this weight.
Our farmers pick almost 15,000kg of raw leaf per week.
Typically the transformation is 4.4 kg raw to finished product.
Timeline: It would therefore take about 3-4 weeks to process a 20 foot container.
