The KNC Voice

From our Farms:  Hatwara

The year was 1932. The world was experiencing the first global recorded economic crisis. Knowing little of his new home, Dr. Howarth (at that point, just a boy) moved to ‘heartbreak’ Hatwara when rainfall was scarce.

Greetings to my KNC family! Welcome to the 7th issue of The KNC Voice.

We are just winding up our first half of the year, about to begin our review process. Some of us are where we are meant to be and some of us are still struggling to face the challenges of the new year. Let us pull up our bootstraps and look ahead, focus on what we need to achieve. Realistically evaluate where we are and what we need to do to close the gaps and ensure the same is communicated across our teams.

Team work and collaboration is key to our organizational success, we need to understand and apply each of our roles in the contribution of a successful VIP. We need to work together to ensure we are pushing and supporting our colleagues. We need to ensure every decision and process we are a part of ensures the sustainability of our business and those around us. Let us therefore, continue challenging each other to be better and I challenge you to consider the above as we go into the evaluation period next month.

I wish you all a successful Half II.

1. The Sakura Awards are an international wine award that celebrates women wine makers from across the globe. It was started to address the lack of recognition and appreciation extended towards women wine makers in Japan and is now globally recognized as a major award celebrates women wine makers.

Our very own Leleshwa Sweet White wine was among a total of 4,326 wine entries globally for 2018, with only 2 African countries taking part in the competition.

Out of these, only 2,006 wines won an award. This being our very first entry into the competition, it is with much excitement, equal measure of pride and humility, that announce that Leleshwa won a Silver Sakura Award. The only award featured in the region.

A big congratulations to our very own female wine maker Emma Nderitu for soaring such great heights.

Congratulations Emma!

Congratulations Leleshwa! To many more…cheers!
