WERU TEA FACTORY COMPANY LIMITED
Weru Tea Factory is located in Muthambi Division, Tharaka Nithi county.

Weru tea Factory was constructed in May 2000 although tea was first grown in the area in 1972 with most of the farms established in the 1990's. The need for the construction of the factory arose due to acute congestion of green tea leaf at Kinoro Tea Factory , the long distances covered by the leaf carriers leading to high costs and the potential for further production.
The Factory was commissioned in 2002 to manufacture black CTC teas. At the time of commissioning, the annual installed processing capacity for the factory was 10 million Kg's green leaf per year with two lines, but currently the Factory has been expanded to three lines with a processing capacity of 15 Million Kg's of green leaf per year. The Factory stands on a total of 24.73 acres of land.
Weru catchment area has approximately 8,903 registered growers with approximately 4,048.15 Acres under tea.
