Having been awarded the “Best Agribusiness Company, 2017” by KNCCI, Africa Plantation Capital is proud to have already established state of the art Bamboo Plantations in Kenya. Bamboo is an amazing crop which is harvested annually from year five and can be processed into several end products. APC trying to maximize the expected returns and minimize the waiting period is now investing in a Bamboo Leaf Tea facility. The Company will be ready to start the production of its bamboo tea ” Boo Chai ” before the end of the year.
Bamboo leaves can be harvested from year three creating extra income for bamboo plantation owners. With support from APC Groups’ scientific team and the vast experience Asia/Africa Plantation Capital has, the company has spent a lot of time and resources to formulate the perfect way to make tea from bamboo. It has come up with a process that we think works best for extracting the highest bio-available nutrients from the plant. APC’s plantation management team will only harvest in season and in small carefully selected batches to ensure freshness. The team will work hard to ensure that our tea contains only the good stuff.
Bamboo Leaf Tea is made of 100% bamboo leaves grown with organic methods and processed by hand in sunny Kilifi County without the use of any chemicals, in our fully irrigated and monitored bamboo plantations. Bamboo Leaf Tea has a wonderfully sweet, green flavor that aids and balances both mind and body. We grow our plants with the utmost care and attention to nutritional value and sustainable agriculture. Bamboo has the highest amount of vegetative silica of any plant. Ten times the amount of horsetail or nettles. It is what allows bamboo to grow so fast and strong and yet remain flexible. The tea also contains soluble fiber rich in antioxidants. Bamboo leaf Tea is caffeine free and contains silica as well as soluble fiber.
