“Today I paid a courtesy call to His Excellency Kiambu Governor, Kimani Wamatangi at his offices. On behalf of KTDA board members I appraised the governor on steps KTDA is taking to promote the welfare of tea farmers in the county. I also updated the Governor on the reforms progress in the smallholder tea sector.
Kiambu County is host to 6 KTDA managed factories: Kambaa, Kagwi,Theta , Ndarugu , Gachege and Mataara
In the last financial year ( 2021/2022) the factories processed 104 million kilos of tea, translating to a total revenue of Kshs 7.5 Billion that was distributed to 28,000 farmers.”
