Prothem Usine s.a

Prothem-Usine s.a is an acronym that stands for Mwaro Tea Promotion. The founder, Hon. Epitace Bayaganakandi, with a group of farmers and promoters, launched a tea growing project in 2002. The founder's vision was to alleviate poverty and economically empower small farmers in Mwaro Province. They set up tea nurseries and introduced the tea plantation in the area. In 2007, Prothem-Usine SA was registered as a private tea company with the promoters contributing to the initial capital and the construction of a tea factory in Gisozi near the ISABU (Institute of Agronomic Sciences of Burundi), at 70 km from the capital, Bujumbura. It began operations in April 2011 as the first private tea factory in Burundi with a capacity to process more than 6 million Kgs of green leaves and 1.5 million Kgs of made tea .
