Eaagads is engaged in growing, blending and selling of coffee products both locally and in the International market. It produces approximately 292 tons of coffee annually. The company sold some of its land to Tatu city, a property development project by Moscow-based Renaissance Partners. Renaissance is the largest shareholder in Eaagads, a stake it acquired after it bought out the majority shareholder Socfinaf.
Eaagads has lived up to its vision to operate in an eco-friendly environment for sustainable production. Eaagads has complied with the requirements of National Environment Management authority (NEMA). The coffee estate has a forest cover of 2.6 hectares comprising of eucalyptus, grevillea, moringa oleifera and cypress forest species. Moreover we have 47% of the land under the flora cover. We recycle water used in wet mills processing to ensure we do not have effluent getting into water basins. The by-product (cherry husks) of the wet processing we bio-grade them to compost manure for organic soil enrichment. We have shade trees inter-planted within the coffee bushes.
We take conscious measures to minimize any adverse effects on the environment. All products used in the plantation are certified and recommended as safe by both the government and international agencies. We conduct annual self-environmental audits to ensure that our operations meet the national standards. We are also certified by UTZ, an international accreditation agency.
