This chapter discusses the effects of pesticide residue limits on exports by Indian tea producers and of the absence of internationally harmonised regulations. It draws attention to producers' complaints about the differences in the limits set by different countries and to what they perceived as the arbitrariness of Germany's limits, to reactions by consumer groups, and to the choice made by some Indian producers to shift to an "organic" product both to satisfy consumers and increase profit margins for a quality product.
