Norben Tea & Exports Ltd. was
originally incorporated as Daga Plantations Ltd. in
the early 90s.
Norben has been promoted by Sri Manoj Kumar Daga,
a scion of the well known Daga family of Kolkata who
gained vast experience in maintaining and managing
tea estates along with marketing of teas. The family
has been engaged in the business of growing, manufacturing
and marketing of tea for three generations and some
of the tea estates have even received the Tea
Board Award for highest productivity.
A new generation tea producing company, Norben has
established new tea plantations and a new factory
in the traditional tea growing area of Berubari in
Jalpaiguri District of West Bengal, to manufacture
tea with an installed capacity of 12 Lakh Kgs. of
made tea, per annum.
After successfully launching its produce which is
well accepted in the market in bulk and consumer packs
for retail consumption, the company has entered into
an arrangement with Arambagh Hatcheries for sale of
Norben teas at Arambagh Food Mart outlets. The company
has already sent its teas for sale under the Tea Post
Service of India Post; Norben is now thinking to start
up its own outlets. In Kolkata it has also applied
for its own small stalls at prominent places inside
the stations of Metro Railway, Kolkata.
The garden has good education, health, housing and other
facilities, which makes it eligible for membership to
the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP).

governance involving transparency, empowerment,
accountability and integrity with a view to
