Its been a busy year for us here at Klipopmekaar!
At the beginning of the year, we decided to make some major investments in new facilities and equipment which will enable us to make, process and store Rooibos tea for our valued customers.
And, we’re now very proud to announce the completion of the construction of these facilities:
– A 3000 square meter tea processing court with state-of-the-art cutting machines and an array of other industry-leading machinery which will enable us to to process larger volumes of tea while simultaneously increasing both the quality/range of the cut and clean yield achieved.
– An 800 square meter dedicated Rooibos tea store which will provide a good, clean, dry environment, and stable climate for long-term storage of up to 500 tons of tea.
– Four brand new staff family homes. All very generously proportioned, designed using green architectural principles (including thermal insulation and solar water heating), furnished, and built in harmony with our pristine environment.
With the 2009/2010 harvest looking really good, we’re looking forward to continued growth and expansion of our Rooibos business, while providing the best possible work environment for our staff; and continued care for our environment.
