Company Introduction

We take this opportunity to introduce ourselves as a U. K. Based Group with the Parent Company, Global Tea & Commodities Ltd. Having its offices in London and having interests in Tea and Coffee Trading, Blending and Packing and Tea, Coffee and Macadamia Nuts Plantations and also Dairy Farming.

Global Tea & Commodities (Kenya) Ltd. Is based in Mombasa, which is currently among the largest Tea companies in Africa and trades just over 10% of the Continents Tea production. Has 160,000 Square Feet of Production & Warehousing space. The main export market for the Mombasa office is United Kingdom, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, USA, Russia, Yemen, and Djibouti. Packing depends on destination or as per Buyers requirement, and ranges from 5 gms poly pouches to 70 KG Kraft Paper Bags. Teas are shipped in original Factory Packing or Blended and repacked as per Buyers requirement. A similar operation was set up in Blantyre, Malawi in February,2001 under the name of Global Tea & Commodities (Malawi) Ltd. Which operates at the Limbe Auction as well as sources Teas directly from Plantations in Malawi.

Gold Crown Foods Ltd. Is the Tea and Coffee Blending and Packing operation based in Liverpool, U. K. It is a GBP 10,000,000 investment and is undoubtedly the most modern and efficient Tea and Coffee production unit in the U. K. Situated on a 5 acre site in Knowsley on Merseyside, the 190,000 Square Feet Plant is ISO 9002 Accredited and has a blending and packing capacity of 21 million Kgs of Tea and 6 million Kgs of Instant Coffee. It has positioned itself as the leading Tea and Coffee manufacturer in the United Kingdom. Besides being a major supplier of private labels to most supermarket chains in the United Kingdom, the company is also very active in exports.

Gold Crown Beverages (Kenya) Ltd. Is a state of the art Tea Blending and Packing Factory, based in a 55,000 Square Feet Plant which was commissioned in 2002 at Mombasa, Kenya. It has been established to add value to Kenyan Tea, which despite its excellent quality, has been poorly packaged and presented to the consumer by the existing Tea Packers. Kericho Gold and Baraka Chai have taken two years of careful planning to design packaging which will be attractive to the consumer, retain the freshness of the product and has a wide range of sizes and variety to suit every palate and income level. Besides tea we also pack instant coffee which is sold under the brand name of Red Mountain. It is also available in single serve sachet form besides bottles.

Our Company has been awarded BRC, ISO 9001-2000 and HACCP Certification by Bureau Veritas of Geneva. HACCP is the ultimate award of Hygiene and Quality that a Food or Beverage Company can achieve and we are the first Tea Company in Kenya and indeed the rest of East, Central or West Africa to be awarded this Certification. In 2005 Global Tea & Commodities Ltd also won the Queens Award for Enterprise.

The Group acquired The Red Mountain Coffee Co. Ltd. From Brooke Bond Ltd in November,2000 and it has now positioned itself among the top 5 leading Brands of Coffee in the U. K. In January 2000 we acquired all of the interests of The Commonwealth Development Corporation in Malawi and North Tanzania, which includes Tea Plantations with 3 processing factories in Tanzania and Malawi and Coffee and Macadamia Nuts Plantations and a Large Dairy Farm. In April 2003 in Malawi we also acquired Makandi Tea Estates from Lonrho PLC and also bought over the Largest Tea Broking firm in the country called Tea Brokers Central Africa. We also have within the Group, a Tea Sourcing office in Calcutta and Coimbatore, India. These offices mainly buy Indian Teas for export to the United Kingdom, Russia, Ukraine and Poland. The Group also has Buying Agents in other Tea Producing Countries like Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
