In the drive towards becoming more sustainable, over 1500 farmers have been provided with individual technical assistance to improve quality and productivity. Alongside, training on effective agricultural practices is also organised that covers minimal pesticide use in the tea garden, the ropes of machine harvesting and manuring, among other things.
Nestlé CHOLADI organises free health camps three times a year for those who are members of the tea community. Since 2017, over 2500 members have been provided with access to free consultations in general medicine, pediatric care, dental or dermatology services. Eye screening sessions were also conducted.

Nestlé CHOLADI has been consistently making efforts in restoring and enriching soil health. Soil in tea is grossly inadequate and unbalanced, which leads to poor output and quality. To address this issue, soil tests are being conducted in farms every year with the assistance of external labs to measure primary and secondary micronutrients of the tea soil in the Nilgiris region. Once the soil health is evaluated, farmers are offered advice on nutrient recommendations for optimum yield.
