Ketepa is a subsidiary of Kenya Tea Development Agency Limited (KTDA) which is the largest small scale farmer umbrella body in the World with over 650,000 farmers. These farmers own over 60 tea processing factories and produce slightly above 60% of all Kenyan tea.
We have remained at the forefront of embracing technology and refreshed our local and international customers from insights and expertise gathered over 40 years since inception in 1978. Our leaves are handpicked from lush green tea fields in Kenya’s pristine highlands, 7000 feet above sea level. Our tea is manufactured locally by KTDA factories and KTGA members and we pick only the best for packaging. To complement our tea business, we have Maisha Purified drinking water which is packaged in our Nairobi factory through modern technology. Our primary focus is to avail high quality Kenyan-grown tea and safe drinking water at affordable prices while having a positive impact in our communities and employees. Through our backward integration with KTDA, we are able to transform and empower hundreds of thousands of tea farmers in tea growing zones in health, education, economic empowerment and environmental sustainability.
As a group, KTDA has taken an active role in reducing the effects of climate change by encouraging farmers to adopt more sustainable farming techniques that not only positively impact the natural ecosystem, but also improves productivity in
