NTZDC Directors Visit Factory And North Rift Zones
NTZDC Board of Directors and top management last week went on scheduled field visit covering zones in the South and North Rift. The team led by the Managing Director visited blocks in Kuresoi, Nandi, Kipchabo Tea Factory, Kasokwony/Saboti and eneded the tour at Kaptarakwa.
The main objective of the tour was to acquaint the newly appointed Directors with the Corporation's field operations and also to appreciate the tea buffer conservation model.
At Kuresoi, the Directors witnessed first hand the untended tea plantation following the cessation of operations at the new buffer establishment. MD noted that the tea plantation established in 2016 was still intact, and would be easy to rehabilitate once operations resume.
Managing Director reiterated the harmony between the Corporation and the buffer adjacent communities as partners in conservation, and assured them that there were high level consultations in government to resume operations in the area.
At KipchaboTea factory, Board Chairman thanked the management and staff for scaling great heights in the achievement of the Corporation's mandate during his tenure. He reiterated the need for integrity across all operations and stated that the tremendous growth witnessed in the last six years was a result of strategic planning and commitment across the board. Chairman wished everyone well in their future endeavours, noting that the Corporation was poised to be a giant in the tea and conservation sector.
During the field trip, the Board also toured Kipchabo Tea Factory and selected blocks in Nandi North, Kapsokwony/Saboti and Kapratakwa zones, all of which are undertaking massive tea expansion and in-filling programmes.
