About Made In Bhutan – Bhutan A Traders (BAT)

Bhutan A Traders is one of the earliest trading company in Bhutan. Through the decades of trading, our
activities have metamorphosed a few times to handle products in line with changing times, where we
have made a conscious decision to work ethically to provide products that take into account the
protection of our natural environment, sustainable development, and direct benefit to the grass roots
producers and growers.

HISTORY : In the early 1980’s Bhutan had abundance of timber. Timber used to be one of the main
export product from the Kingdom of Bhutan and we were at one point of time was the Only exporter of
timber from Bhutan.

Then with education came the understanding and responsibility of preserving our natural environment
and going for sustainable development. So the Royal Government of Bhutan focused on the
development of agricultural products. And simultaneously, the trading licensing process also started.

After proper licensing procedures came up, our license name was "Sherpa Tshering Fruits Exports" and
we exported only Apples and Oranges from Bhutan.

In late 1990’s the license legal name was changed to “Sherpa Tshering Exports” as more products (apart
from fruits) was being exported, and these were natural minerals mined in Bhutan,namely, Quartzite,
dolomite and lime stone.

In mid-2003 after my father (the license holder died), the license name was changed to "Bhutan Sherpa
Exports” and legally transferred to me. I exported fruits, and organically grown and packaged tea,
incense sticks and powder, Bhutan made statues and hand woven textiles.

Then in early 2017, the license name got changed to Bhutan A Traders. “Bhutan A Traders” is no more
exporting timber due to environment concerns and now concentrates on trading and mainly exporting
Genuine Bhutan Made Products , eatables like (Bhutanese red rice, green tea, dry chilies, mountain
water weeds, safflower tea, etc), textiles, crafts and religious items like incense, scrolls, statues and
many more products, with the main focus being that whatever we export from Bhutan, we Guarantee
