Now, areca tea hits the market

Dharmastala Dharmadhikari Veerendra Heggade, on Friday, launched areca tea in the City. The beverage is developed by Nivedan Nempe, a postgraduate student in pharmacy.

The product, initially available in the State, will be launched nationwide in a span of two months. Speaking on the occasion, Nempe said the tea helps improve digestion and act against depression. The product has been certified by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and has also received the Make in India Excellence Award-2015.

Speaking on the occasion, Heggade said that farmers were becoming victims of fluctuations in the price of farm produce and the government should therefore ensure stable prices for agricultural produce.
