It’s a complete circle for Nyayo Tea Zones Development Corporation in the tea sector value chain as the State Corporation launched its tea products for local market sales. This milestone was achieved on November 24th, 2014 when the Corporation’s sales team was flagged off at Kipchabo Tea Factory in Nandi County where the blending and packaging unit is located.
The launch of the tea products is part of the Corporation’s strategies to realize its full commercial potential by venturing into value addition of its tea products. The Corporation is now fully operational across the tea sector value chain which includes green leaf production, tea processing, blending, branding and packaging of tea products.
The Corporation has released five brands for local market sales namely;
- Chabo Tea
- Chabo Tea Bag
- Eco Tea
- Eco Tea Bag
- Najma Tea
The tea products will initially be available in retail outlets in the West of Rift and Nairobi and will gradually be rolled out to the rest of the country.
