Southdown Estate is the flag-ship tea producer for Ariston.
With newly installed state-of-the- art tea harvesting and processing equipment, now also replicated at Clearwater and Roscommon Estate, Southdown will continue to produce better quality teas for both the export and local markets.
Currently over 65% of Ariston teas are exported primarily to Europe, USA and increasingly to India and Africa.
Clearwater, Roscommon and Southdown Estates, combined, make Ariston the third largest tea producer in Zimbabwe. There are increasing plantings of macadamia, banana and potato crops at Southdown Estate for both local and export markets.
