About Chamong, Kolkata
Adding Health To Your Daily Cup
A fruit of relentless efforts and meticulous planning, the first of the Chamong tea gardens was established in 1916 in Assam by the Lohia brothers. A spiritual retreat, it was once home to the Lepcha Buddhist monks who used the surrounding area as a haven for mindfulness and tranquillity. Chamong Tea Exports Pvt Ltd was incorporated in 1992. Its primary objective was to market and export the company’s produce which was mainly Darjeeling and Assam leaf tea. It soon expanded to include trading in all varieties of teas, so as to provide their consumers with the best brews.
Today, the family owns four estates in Assam and 17 in Darjeeling, some of them 100 years old or more. The brand is the largest producer of organic teas, both in terms of quantity and quality. This professionally managed group is now into its 6th generation, with Siddharth Lohia holding the reins and continues to to spread its fragrance all over.
Their infrastructure is vast with a state-of-the-art manufacturing unit. In their Kolkata branch they have commissioned a fully automatic system to ensure hygienic blending and packaging of teas in keeping with EU regulations as well as FSSAI and HACCP standards. The company’s organic cultivation process ensures health of farm hands as well as consumers besides benefitting the entire ecosystem with minimal pollution and carbon footprint. Tea-pickers aren’t surprised to find families of monkeys and exotic birds living near the plantations. It has instituted projects for the production of hydroelectricity and substituted domestic fuel with liquid petroleum gas.
The enterprise produces more than 3,000 metric tonnes annually. It employs about 10,000 personnel of which approximately 7,000 are women.
