I find this story curious. The company only had its AGM yesterday to approve a share spilt-which already took place on the 14th of this month! I know the NSE has been desperate for business, but why can't they do things procedurally?
Other than that, I am encouraged that the tea and coffee companies are looking beyond growing and exporting tea and now thinking of doing value-adding. It has always seemed incredible that you get paid something like ksh9 per kilo of tea/coffee as a farmer, but a consumer in the West pays the equivalent of ksh300 for a cup of the same! Worse, the companies selling this cup of tea or coffee actually prefer to buy the raw beans or leaves straight from the farmer to keep the prices low; brand them so they can charge the premium and even go as far as taking legal action to stop the grower countries from branding their own product.
