In 2004, our company got introduced to Fairtrade Labeling Organization by Eastern Produce Kenya Ltd. Fortunately, were certified as a Small Producer Organisation in April 2006. By then, Sireet OEP had no factory, but EPK Ltd factories were registered as our processors/ exporters. Since then, Sireet OEP has received premiums totaling over Ksh 214 million. The Premium owns 12.8% which is an equivalent Ksh. 56.3m of Siret Tea Co. Ltd and therefore dividend earned goes to the premium kitty. The Total cost of Siret has came to Ksh 438 million because of exchange rates.
The company is pleased to have so far made the following Fair trade sales:
|Harvest Year||Total Production Volume (kgs)||Total Sales (kgs)||Direct Exports (kgs)||Total FT Exports (kgs)|
Siret OEP wishes to appreciate its Fairtrade Buyers for their contribution in the success of this Company.
