KETEPA WINS TOP ASK AWARDS AT THE ASK MOMBASA INTERNATIONAL TRADE SHOW 2016

Kenya Tea Packers Limited (KETEPA) won top Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) awards in the just concluded Mombasa International Trade Fair (MIS).

KETEPA won the ‘Best Stand that Interprets the show theme’ award after the adjudicators vetted KETEPA and agreed that its business activities were in synch with the show’s theme – enhancing technology in agriculture and industry for food security and national growth. The availability of KETEPA’s offering of top quality Kenya tea emanates from its brands Ketepa Pride Tea Bags, Safari Pure Tea and Jani Green Tea. The company’s venture into bottled drinking Water (under the brand name Maisha Purified Drinking Water) has also seen the company grow in leaps and bounds and offer consumers a one-stop beverage solution.

KETEPA participates in regional and international trade fairs to enhance its image, reinforce its top market position, distinguish itself from competitors, introduce new products and demonstrate support for the tea industry. Through the showcase the company is able to attract attention from attendees who are key consumers of our brands while providing a platform to explain further our processes and performance that ensures we supply only the highest quality tea globally.

The 2015 ASK theme resonates well with the government objective of attaining national food security. According to a United Nation report, food security is a situation in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. KETEPA takes centre stage in the attainment of food security and bolsters the economy that largely relies on agriculture.

Mombasa International Trade Fair (MIT) is the largest Trade Fair in the East African region. It runs for seven day from late August to early September every year. The trade Fair offers opportunities for regional, continental and global exhibitors to display and demonstrate their goods and services to customers. It also offers show visitors an opportunity to meet people from different countries and backgrounds, hence creating a platform for interaction and exchanging of ideas and experiences.
