The stupendous success of the 2nd World Tea & Coffee Expo 2014 @
Mumbai, INDIA in September 2014, has established this Expo as the
official Industry show with just two editions under its belt. This is
India’s only International Trade Show dedicated to Tea & Coffee and
is supported by Ministry of Commerce through Tea Board of India and
leading associations and chambers from across the world have pledged
their support to this important industry initiative.

The Expo offers huge potential for appointing Distributors, Bulk
orders, joint ventures, franchising, networking, knowledge-sharing,
meeting government officials, marketing alliances, and overall
branding. WTCE has become the platform for the launch of new and
exotic tea & coffee products. For a visitor, Workshops and seminars
are the other important part of the event, which will help them to
understand the depth of this industry, gain knowledge, understand
benefits and also to taste the products on the spot. Skill development
shall be the main theme of the workshops which will be conducted by
experts in the field. Adds Kapadia, “For the International Tea &
Coffee conference, we are in touch with a number of international
speakers and some of them have already confirmed.”

The global market for RTD (Ready-to-Drink) Tea and Coffee is expected
to reach $125 billion by 2017 with an annual growth rate of 11%. The
Asia-Pacific region is the largest market and also showing maximum
growth. To capitalize on the growth trend in the RTD Tea & Coffee,
companies are investing heavily on modernization of machineries,
Quality Up-gradation & Product Diversification as also branding,
innovations and market expansion. The Upscale café culture has
contributed significantly to the growth of both Coffee & Tea in India
with exotic branding and packaging coupled with a dynamic product mix
are driving the demand. Drinking habits and lifestyles have changed in
the last 8 – 10 years and people are now willing to pay more for

India is the 2nd largest producer, 2nd largest consumer and
4th largest exporter of tea with a 23% share in global production, a
12% share in world tea exports and a per capita consumption of about
725 grams (2013-14 figures). The 6th largest producer of the coffee in
the world, India exports more than 80% of its coffee presently but a
rising domestic demand at 7% annually may change this scenario
completely over the next decade or so. The trend towards health
consciousness, coupled with increased competitive pressure, will
further push new product development in the next five years, which
will in turn boost industry demand. Most International companies which
have entered India are doing brisk business and expanding their
operations. The World Tea & Coffee Expo is the catalyst for
International companies to target this huge market.

WTCE will determine trends, create awareness on optimization of
product lines, enable networking with peers, industry stalwarts,
academia and government officials. The vision of the World Tea &
Coffee Expo is to facilitate and expand the Indian Beverage business
by providing all sourcing requirements under one roof. Organized by
Sentinel Exhibitions Asia P Ltd [SEA], a part of the
Mumbai-headquartered Sentinel media group, WTCE is established as the
VOICE OF THE INDUSTRY and as the Gateway to Indian markets. For
