There were booms in prices paid to native planters through severe competition among buying firms at certain times. At slack periods there was an extreme fall in price.
To improve this situation a purchase system was devised which guaranteed tea merchants sufficient raw material of a consistently good quality at a reasonable price and guaranteed native planters a sufficient outlet for their product Ott a price related to the price of dry tea on the world market.
The trading risk previously borne exclusively by the native planter was now more fairly spread.
