From our Farms: Macadamia Processing

Raw macadamia nuts are sourced from both farms and fields. Farms are the company orchards that includes Kiboko, Kiaora, Nando, Hatwara and Kihenia. Field nuts are sourced from out growers and are sourced from among others Embu, Thika, Muranga, Meru, Karatina, and Western among others.

This is done in three stages; primary, secondary and final curing.

Moisture content checks are done in stages to ensure the kernel parameters do not change and are desirable to the customers.

Digital Watch: Personal productivity Apps

In this segment, we recommend tools to help improve your personal productivity. Here are the top 4 apps to help you realize more goals, more efficiently, in less time.

Productivity tools have a compounding effect on our lives, like the flywheel effect. Jim Collins in his book Good to Great says, “No matter how dramatic the end result, good-to-great transformations never happen in one fell swoop.” No one killer strategy or single brilliant discovery will turn a business or person in to an overnight success. Rather, a combination of resilience and calculated strategy, executed over a long period of time. “…the process resembles relentlessly pushing a giant, heavy flywheel, turn upon turn, building momentum until a point of breakthrough, and beyond.” Here are some tools to grease your wheel. Download them from your Playstore or Appstore, for free and get productive, today.

Greetings to my KNC family! Welcome to the 5th issue of The KNC Voice.

We are at the tail end of the year and as such it’s a very exciting and anxious period as we rush to the finish line of the goals we set at the beginning of the year. Some of us have done good, others have done great and there are those that are still grasping for their place.

Let’s work with our teams to keep doing that which has given us greatness and grow it. This last quarter sets the platform for the next year. Let us not forget we are continuously growing and working towards our vision “To be the brand of choice in Africa”. I look forward to closing a fruitful year and celebrating together our successes

Did you know?

Brand exposure in a music video has the potential to far outreach what can be secured through a product placement on TV or even in a movie, owing to the possibility of international impact. Music brings together generations and transcends geographical, cultural, and even language barriers unlike any other medium. Consumers see brands in music videos – often subconsciously, and thanks to the digital universe, they can watch it from their phones or computers at any time, from anywhere in in the world, unlike traditional advertising.

This is why we partnered with local gifted artist Atemi, to release her latest single “Romantic”, featuring our amazing Leleshwa wines, setting the perfect mood for Romance, inspired, of course, by Kenya. Watch the preview here – Music Preview , and if you have a minute watch the full video here:  Full music video.
