CHAIRMAN’S REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2012
I hereby submit the report on the performance of the company during the financial year ended 30th June 2012.
CROP
Crop production for the year was higher than last year. 19,014,602 kilogrammes of Green Leaf were delivered for processing at the company's factory. Out of this throughput 4,381,198, kilogrammes of tea were made. These throughput and output were higher than last year's levels of 16,171,944 kilogrammes and 3,826,319 kilogrammes by 2,842,658 kilogrammes and 554,879 kilogrammes respectively. This achievement was at a conversion factor of 23.04% which is equivalent to per 4.34 Kg of Green Leaf to make one kilogram of Made Tea.
TEA PRICES
There was an increase in tea prices during the year. The average price realized per kilogram of made tea sold was Kshs. 298.73. This compares favorably with the price of Kshs. 266.48 in 2011.The prices therefore increased by Kshs. 32.25 per kilogram of sold tea. This year's price of one kilogram of made tea sold is equivalent to Kshs. 68.83 per kg of green leaf.

MANUFACTURING COST
The manufacturing costs increased during the year. The average manufacturing cost for the year was Ksh.77.74 for every kilogramme of made tea against the average manufacturing cost of Kshs. 70.71 per kg for last year. There was an increase in the manufacturing cost by  Kshs.7.03 per every kilogramme. This manufacturing cost includes monthly green leaf payment at Kshs. 54.09 per kg of made tea for the year which is higher than Kshs. 50.72 per kg for last year. This year's manufacturing cost was equivalent to Ksh.17.91 per kilogramme of green Leaf as compared to previous year when the cost averaged at 16.73.

RIPOTI YA MWENYEKITI YA MWAKA ULIOMALIZIKA 30 JUNI 2012
Ningetaka kuwatolea ripoti kuhusu vile Kampuni ilivyofanya katika mwaka ulioisha tarehe 30 Juni, 2012.
MAVUNO YA CHAI
Mavuno ya Chai katika mwaka yalikuwa juu ya yale ya mwaka uliotangulia. Kilo 19,014,602 za majani mabichi ya chai zilipelekwa kutengenezwa katika kiwanda cha Kampuni. Kutokana na kiasi hiki cha chai kilo 4,381,198 za chai iliyotengenezwa zilipatikana. Kiasi hiki kilikuwa juu ya kile cha mwaka uliotangulia cha kilo 16,171,944 za majani mabichi na kilo 3,826,319 za chai iliyotengenezwa.Tofauti ilikuwa kilo 2,842,658 za majani  mabichi na kilo 554,879 za chai iliyotengenezwa.Mapato haya kwa kibadilisho cha 23.04 kwa mia ni sawa na kilo 4.34 za majani mabichi ambayo yanatoa kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa.
BEI YA CHAI
Bei ya chai ilipanda katika mwaka. Bei wastani ya chai iliyopatikana kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyouzwa ilikuwa Kshs 298.73. Bei hii ilikuwa ya juu ikilinganishwa na bei ya mwaka uliotangulia ya Kshs.266.48. Kwa hivyo Kampuni ilikuwa na tofauti katika hizo bei ya Kshs 32.25 kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyouzwa. Bei ya chai iliyotengenezwa na kuuzwa katika mwaka ni sawa na Kshs.68.83 kwa kila kilo moja ya majani mabichi.
GHARAMA YA UTENGENEZAJI
Gharama ya utengenezaji ilipanda katika mwaka na ilikuwa Kshs. 77.74 kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa. Gharama wastani ya mwaka uliotangulia ilikuwa Kshs.70.71 na kwa hivyo tofauti ikawa Kshs 7.03 kwa wastani kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa.Gharama ya utengenezaji imejumuishwa na ile ya malipo ya majani chai kwa mwezi ya kshs 54.09 kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa yenye ilikua juu
ikilinganishwa na ile ya mwaka uliotangulia ya kshs 50.72 kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa.Gharama ya utengenezaji katika mwaka ilikuwa sawa na Kshs 17.91, kwa kila kilo moja ya majani mabichi,ikilinganishwa na mwaka uliopita ambapo gharama ilikuwa Kshs 16.73.
MALIPO YA MAJANI CHAI NA MGAO
Kampuni iliweza kulipa malipo kwa wakulima ya Kshs.1,035,203,166 kwa majani chai iliyopokewa kiwandani ikilinganishwa na yale ya mwaka uliopita ya shilingi 840,132,485. Kampuni iliweza kulipa malipo ya kwanza ya Kshs. 12.00 kutoka Julai 2011 mpaka Machi 2012 na kshs.14.00 kutoka Aprili 2012 mpaka Juni 2012 kwa kilo moja ya majani mabichi ambayo ni sawa na Kshs. 54.09 kwa kila kilo moja ya chai iliyotengenezwa. Baraza la Wakurugenzi walipendekeza malipo ya mgao ya asilimia tano kwa wanahisa wote wa hisa za "B" waliokuwa katika kitabu cha wanahisa cha kampumi mnamo tarehe 30 Juni 2012. Kwa jumla shilingi 4,782,256 zitalipwa kama mgao.

MAFANIKIO
 Kampuni inaendelea kupanua eneo la kutandaza majani chai ikizingatia kwamba kwa sasa kiwango cha Majani chai tunachopata na kile tunachotarajia katika siku za usoni, huu mradi utaongeza ustandi wa chai na upungufu wa gharama ya kawi. pia
utawezasha uchukuzi wa majani mabichi ya chai kwa haraka.
 Mwaka huu kampuni ilichaguliwa kuwa katika kampuni zile bora kwa kumbunguza gharama ya kawi na ika hitimu cheti.
 Kampuni pia imenunua machine ya kisasa ya kusaidia uangalifu kamili wa magari wakati yanapo chukua kuni na majani mabichi ya chai.
 Katika mwaka huu kampuni pia imenunua machine ya pili (firewood boiler) yenye itazaidia kupunguza grarama ya utumiaji wa mafuta. huu mradi unaendelea.
 Kampuni imeendelea kutengeneza barabara zetu ambazo zimeboresha huduma ya uchukuzi wa majani mabichi ya chai.
Lazima tukumbuke ya kwamba kunawiri kwa Kampuni hii katika siku za usoni kutategemea sana mipangilio itakayowekwa sasa kama ya kupunguza gharama.
CHANGAMOTO
Tukumbuke ya kwamba biashara ya majani chai inakumbwa na matatizo kadhaa kutokana na ongezeko kama gharama za utengenezaji (zikiwemo gharama za mbolea, kawi na malipo kwa wafanyi kazi) na pia kutoimarika kwa sarafu ya Kenya ikilinganishwa na fedha ya kigeni.
SHUKRANI
Kwa niaba ya Baraza la Wakurugenzi, ningetaka kuwatolea shukrani wafanyi kazi wote wa Kampuni, wanahisa na wakulima wote waliopeleka majani mabichi ya chai katika Kampuni kwa kazi yao iliyowezesha Kampuni kufanikiwa katika mwaka tunaoufikiria.
