After successful in the endeavour, consequently, a first tea factory in Uttarakhand by Giria’s Uttaranchal Tea company in joint venture with government of Uttarakhand entitled  “ Uttaranchal Tea Factory ” at Pingalkote in the Kausani area in Bageshwar District was established in the year 2001. The factory initiated the orthodox Tea production by 2002 under the brand name “Uttaranchal Tea.” The demand of the above Tea is now escalating at global market along with local market.
